[Trilinos-Users] Patch submission process

Thanks, Carlos.  That was quite helpful.  I've now issued my first two pull requests.

For anyone else who might be new to this, here was my process:
1. Create my own fork of Trilinos in GitHub.
2. Create a new branch within the fork, corresponding to a single pull request.
3. Apply changes.
4. Create a pull request (using "compare across forks"), with the official Trilinos repo as base, and my fork as head.

I submitted to Trilinos's "master" branch, but I think the better thing would have been to submit to "develop," based on Denis Ridzal's comment on one of the pull requests.  (I may end up closing and recreating to submit to develop.)

Best regards,
