Hi Eric,

When I used to select 'edit', I would get a page which would show my changes (original vs. my changes) as I did edits. Seems like I'm not seeing that anymore. Not sure if I'm doing something different or some system setting has changed. Anyway, as long as you can see my suggested changes.

It is impossible to have different privileges on different files in Github. You don’t have write privileges so you have to send in a pull request from your repository, which makes sure that I have seen your changes. (This is the rule for everyone but W3C staff.)

If you click “Edit” on the complex images page, Github is doing all the dirty work for you, it forks the repository into your account, lets you make changes and send in a pull request in one flow. It should be no different to edit other files…

Hope this helps, if not, feel free to send in your comments via email <wai-eo-editors@w3.org>.
