+1 though a pull request is something that only exists in github i
think? we can receive patches on this list, but almost no one has
sendmail(-like) configured on their systems (could be part of such
contributing guide)

you could also host your abslibre.git clone anywhere and ask us to pull
and review from there, even github though it'd be cool if we didn't have
to rely on unfree services.
