Pretty much, although I don't use 'pull', I typically just create a
branch directly from the remote branch. If you want to know my exact
procedure, I use the github command line utility to create and update
the fork, it's something like:
git fetch origin
git checkout origin/develop -b branch-name
# If necessary:
git submodule update --init
git push -u danieljames
# Commit changes.
If it isn't clear, 'origin' is the boostorg repository, 'hub fork'
creates a remote with your username (in my case danieljames). 'git
push -u' is important as it sets the branch to push to my account.
I usually use the web interface to create the pull request.
