That's going to be a problem no matter which route you take.

Because each pull request can be tracked in github, which will reduce
the administrative burden. It'll also be easier to make the changes on
a branch so that you don't disrupt other people's work. And of course
merging should be better. When I said it would be easier to manage, I
wasn't talking about the initial changes.
