 ## Contributing a Small Patch
-*If you are familiar with the process of sending pull requests through Bitbucket using either Git or Mercurial, simply send us one. Otherwise, read on.*
+*Pull requests are preferred over patches. For only a small set of changes a patch is fine.*
 The recommended way of creating a patch is to clone the petsc-repository, create a new branch on your local repository from master, apply and commit your changes there, and let Git/Mercurial create the patch. Send the patch to [petsc-dev@mcs.anl.gov](mailto:petsc-dev@mcs.anl.gov).
