The TEI Technical Council is currently reviewing how it uses GitHub as part of examining whether it is a suitable replacement for SourceForge in moving Guidelines development there. As you know, it moved the Stylesheets (and other software) building there some time ago. Although you (and various others) are members of the Stylesheets repository I believe the correct github etiquette is to fork, then issue a pull request. However, I think as long as you are flagging that you are making the change (or open an issue and then make the change as a result of that) it should probably be fine. (Though when you say 'regularise the display of attribute values' I'd be interested to know what you mean by regularise. There are some options and logic already in there.) The change in your forked version won't get looked at by Jenkins. We're also looking at whether some of the GitHub hosted alternative continuous integration systems might replace Jenkins. So, to be honest, you could do either, but fork+change+pull-request will ensure that it gets other eyes on it before going into the system. Jenkins uses the most up-to-date stylesheets when next building the Guidelines. I know it used to email when doing commits to the Guidelines SF SVN repository that broke something (or more accurately when someone committing around the same time as you broke something ;-) ) and I'm assuming that is still the case. I don't think it emailed just when it was running a job based on your commits...just when that job failed and your commit was one of those possible causes.
That is my understanding at least, some of our council github gurus may correct me.

Do I just push a change request to https://github.com/TEIC/Stylesheets ? Or fork it? Does that get tested by jenkins?
Jenkins used to send me emails when it ran a job based on my commits, but I've not seen one for a couple of recent commits, is that because I'm not on the council any more?
