It can be nice to pull from a real repository, but some people (me included) would prefer to put experimental patches into a patch queue with mq. I like this option better because Bram doesn't pull from clones, he just uses the patches (or at least this is the case for the "official" repository, obviously I don't know what his personal clones might look like). So, if I pull a bunch of changes on the default branch into my clone, that history never gets pulled in and either I will need to strip it or let some extra head just dangle.
So if you want to commit to a clone, that's good, and you should share it...but certainly continue posting patches on vim_dev. I wonder if there's a good way to share patch queues related to a project? That might be an even better way.
