command creates a local copy of it:

git clone git://banu.com/tinyproxy.git

The easiest and preferred way to create a patch for submission is to
check in your changes locally against the 'master' branch and use `git
format-patch` to generate a mbox-style patch file that contains the diff
along with the commit message and author information.  Such a formatted
patch file can be integrated into the upstream repository, automatically
keeping the commit message and author information.

You can also meet developers and discuss development issues and patches
in the `#tinyproxy` IRC channel on Freenode (`irc.freenode.net`).
