It would seem to me that there should be enough introductions and 
guideline documents to github out there already, so that you could just 
give a few pointers.

Also, please note that for very small fixes, just forking, editing 
online on the github site, and then issuing a pull request actually works.

Also, the W3C just recently had a "project review" for how to use 
github. This was mostly for chairs, but maybe you can extract some 
useful bits from there. The slides are at 
http://www.w3.org/2015/Talks/1217-github-w3c/. For more, please also 
check the thread starting at 
http://www.w3.org/mid/5668F138.8010001@w3.org and the minutes at 

Regards,   Martin.
