I think it would be ok to pull something that passed the 2nd vote into
mpiwg-tools/mpir:mpir-1.x so new issues and branches can benefit from
the updated document/chapter.

So what about this workflow:

1. Member creates issue at mpiwg-tools/tools-issues

2. Member creates a branch off mpiwg-tools/mpir:mpir-1.x called


3. Member forks off mpiwg-tools/mpir (or rebases?)

4. Member makes changes to local fork and prepares a pull request from




5. If WG feels OK with the pull request, we accept it and create a
pull-request of




and schedule reading + votes. If anything fails, reiterate from (3),
if it passes, mpiwg-tools merges the pull-request and the the
"working-group copy" of the document reflects all accepted changes.

6. WG then creates another pull-request from the same branch against


so they can be integrated into the _official_ document as soon as
whoever is responsible for it is OK with it.

We could also have a branch


that collects _all_ ticket zero changes. This way, all the trivial
changes of missing commas etc. are in one pull-request and the others
can be done at a time.

What do you think?
