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