Look at
and follow the directions under "Pull Requests" and "Forking a Single
Repo". Having access to MSVC 2010 should not be a big deal for a
maintainer. If you find after your pull request that nobody is
responding to it within a week or two after you make it, then I would
say to post back here and try to find the right person to respond. But
until then let the normal Pull Request process play itself out.
