github itself is closed source, but 95% of its functionality is based on 
git which is open. One only needs to invoke 3-4 git operations to 
support what it does on the website side. Register on the site, fork the 
project under user's login, submit a pull request, merge a fork's branch 
to the main branch. All these are basically git commands. Without the 
glossiness of github, this is not that large of a project. Submitters 
will do the rest through git.

I think, instead of tediously going through the PRs by hand, it is wiser 
to set up some system like this.
