Geoff, please read paragraph "You can help to the project!" at page

If you make a little changes in code, it is not a big problem to test
this changes at KiCad trunk.

But, if you need another location for you BIG changes, you can make a
branch at KiCad SVN tree. And this branch can be merged with KiCad
trunk if you think it is ready for this.
