Hi again!

So, are there any objections about putting the following into the Wiki?
## Guidelines for creating a good Pull Request

* The title and initial description of a Pull request should describe its
  basic idea and what goal is intended to be achieved in a brief and
  comprehensible manner.
* Try your best to document how the provided code is intended to reach this
  goal. If the reviewer has difficulties to understand your approach, try to
  improve the documentation.
* Keep Pull requests as small as possible. The smaller a PR, the more likely
  it gets reviewed in short time.
* Split your PR up into logical pieces. E.g. formatting changes or
  accompanying tests should go into separate commits. 
* Support your reviewer! Try to react as quick as possible to your reviewer's
  comments - and if only by letting her/him know, that you have currently no
  time to incorporate her/his feedback. Also, let the reviewer know if you do
  not plan to continue to work on a certain PR. Furthermore, if your reviewer
  don't react for some days, remind him!

If there's no objection until tonight, I will add this to the Wiki.
