I agree that the PR process is bureaucratic, but that’s not the workflow that Git was made for. It’s a workflow popularized by GitHub.
The workflow that Git was made for was “make commits” + “export patches” + “send patches”. This typically happens over a mailing list. Under this workflow, sending a contribution is a two-step process:
git send-email. The recipient could be a mailing list, or it could just be the developer’s email address you grabbed from a commit message. That’s part of the reason why Git has you include your email in every commit.
