Learning how to use the git app on your local machine is highly recommended for any programmer or webdesigner, though there's a high initial learning curve. My recommendation, especially if you're running windows, is to try setting up git-tortoise http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/ as a really simple solution for starting to harness git's power. Of course, you can also always just use github's web interface to contribute patches as well.
