The workflow in this case will be slightly different, but should be a
very familiar workflow for those coming from a Github world.
1) Login to invent.kde.org, fork the repository there into your
2) Clone the forked repository to your local system
4) Commit and push your changes to the forked repository
5) Follow the link in the push to create the merge request, adding all
the necessary commentary around it
6) Wait for review
Once you're happy with it you can integrate it by merging it from the
web interface (so no need to download and apply the patch locally)
Of course you'll still have the option of fetching their changes and
reviewing them on your local machine should you wish.
