Yes and no :) 

Yes: you'll end up with the same code in both cases because ASF GitBox syncs with GitHub

No: in the first case the "remote" of your clone will be ASF gitbox and in the second case,
    the "remote" of your clone will be GitHub. In both cases, you could still add the other
    one as a second "remote" to your local clone. Both probably won't get you far if you
    want to contribute code because you likely have commit permissions to neither of the two

Because of that you'd probably first want to go to the GitHub website, fork the "maven-gpg-plugin"
repo under your own GitHub account, then clone *that*. If you have already cloned any of the
others, you can could create the fork and add it as another remote to your local clone.

Then, you create a branch, and commit your changes to that branch and push it to the
forked repo under your GitHub account. Once the changes have been pushed there, you
create a "pull request" via the GitHub website.

Really, it sounds more complicated than it really is because there are so many ways
that lead to more-or-less the same result, so I'll summarize the path of least resistance


1) fork repo on github
2) clone fork to your local pc
3) create branch
4) commit changes
5) push branch
6) create pull request
