Thanks for spotting the errors!

Care to craft a patch and send it upstream yourself?
See https://github.com/git/git/blob/master/Documentation/SubmittingPatches
how to approach it.
TL;DR:
    git clone https://github.com/git/git
    # hack hack hack
    git commit
    git format-patch HEAD^
    # use e.g. git send-email to send the patch to the mailing list

Thanks,
