This seems like a good point to remind folks that we have a "Git
Bootcamp and Cheat Sheet" as part of the developer guide:

PR editing is one of the topics covered:

However, many of us editing it tend to be on Linux or Mac OS X (and
are often experienced git users as well), so issues and PRs clarifying
steps that are currently omitted, platform-specific, or otherwise
don't work as advertised are definitely appreciated.
