Hi Jeff,

(CC: Wes, to keep him in the loop for process/convention finding)

thanks for the updates to the MPIR texts. As this being the first pull
request I work on, I have some questions:

1) The pull request states it wants to merge into the
'mpiwg-tools:mpir-1.x' branch. But don't we need a separate branch in
our fork, to enable the "final pull-request" into the mpi-forum:mpir
document? If we directly pull changes into our main branch of the
fork, how can we have separate pull requests for separate
issues/tickets that the forum has/wants to vote on?

2) As commented on the pull request at:


we discussed some wording that goes beyond what this current pull
requests reflects. Should we update the pull request, or merge it and
create a new branch for further updates?

3) In the call yesterday, we were all Git novices, thus I am not sure
whether we agreed on the right workflow within the working group. Our
idea was to create a branch on the working-group repo of the document,
and commit to there, so multiple people can access the text from
there, and we can also create the pull request to the mpi-forum from
there. Would one still need "personal forks" of the documents? I could
imagine to pull from personal forks into the created branch instead of
working on the branch directly. Is that better practice?

4) If 3 makes sense, how can I merge Jeffs pull request not into the
main branch of mpiwg-tools:mpir but into something like
