Forking the repository

According to GitHub's Official Forking Tutorial, "A fork is a copy of a repository. Forking a repository allows you to freely experiment with changes without affecting the original project."

A great example of using forks to propose changes is for bug fixes. Rather than logging an issue for a bug you've found, you can: 1. Fork the repository. 2. Make the fix. 3. Submit a pull request to the project owner.
