I changed the subject as this might be relevant to more people:

If you want me to apply a non-trivial number of patches to
initscripts, it would be very helpful if you could put them in a
public repo (if you can't that's ok, it just means it might take a bit
longer for me to apply them, and there is a bigger risk they might be

One way to do this is using github. Super quick guide:

1) signup at http://github.com/ (the free account is probably what you want)

2) upload your ssh pulickey to github:
“Account Settings” > Click “SSH Public Keys” > Click “Add another public key”

3) create repository called 'initscripts' ("Dashboard" > "New Repository")

4) add the newly created repository on your machine:
$ git remote add <username> git at github.com:<username>/initscripts.git

5) push your local branch (let's say you called it 'work') to the
public repository
$ git push <username> work
(if you have just been committing to the master branch, that's fine,
just push that instead:
$ git push <username> master
