Need help on making pull requests and approving requests on Git

So, i'm not a developer by any means, but i thought i can fix a minor visual glitch in Spark and i have done and tested this in Netbens (connected to Spark's Git repository):



I have also found old pull request waiting for approving Show JID as contact name if instead an empty string would have been show... by rarog · Pull Request #10 · igniterealtime…

filed this as SPARK-1607


So, as we don't have a maintainer for Spark currently. Can someone add me as one for Spark project at Git, so i could approve pull requests? Yeah, i won't be able check the code and its quality, so i would instead try to test the changes after building Spark. And we don't have choice here as nobody else takes the charge. I would resign as soon as someone more competent applies for this position. My username at GitHub is wrooot (see my comment on that request). wroot was already taken


Next i want some insight on how to commit my own change. Can i do this via web on github site? The change is trivial (changing two numbers in two lines in one file). I know that almost noone is using Netbeans here, and i still plan to try Eclipse in the future, but maybe i will find similar commands in Netbeans if you hint me. I see options to Git > Commit, or Git > Deff to Base revision (see last change by Daryl there). Or should i just generate an offline diff patch and attach it to Jira for someone else to commit?


Also, how commits on Git get connected to Jira tickets?
