I was expecting this comment. Still I don't have a straight answer to it.
Probably you're right about this.

Although I use a lot of Free Software from various sources in my
everyday job/life/activities, I've never (version-control-)committed to
any of them.
I've posted plenty of comments and bug reports. Chatted with developers
on IRC.
But maybe that's me not being 2015 :)

All in all, your comment urges us to create a git repo somewhere.
And I can't find a reason why this would be a bad thing :)
