The email-based "system" is standard Linux policy for patch review,
which has been established as a way of minimising the effort otherwise
required by reviewers.
If folk want to deal with stuff "internally" on github off-list, that's
fine, but in order to get patches upstreamed, the patches still need to
be posted to a public Linux mailing list for review purposes.
You can't get away from the "e-mail based system". Sorry.
