My offer was based on exactly that, getting a complete file sent through 
so that I could just copy into my livecode repo and submit it.

As others have already said, once you have created a github account, 
signed the contributors agreement and (if you are not using the web 
interface)
established your local/github livecode repository, the ongoing process 
of submitting contributions is not difficult.

I recommend that anyone who wants to contribute to LiveCode should at 
least give it a go, following the instructions that have been provided 
by Ali
and others.

However, for those that are struggling with that process, my offer 
stands so that their contributions can still be included.

Cheers,

Charles
