[FIXED] Github – After git clone, how to make a pull request?

Issue

I’ve read this. But it doesn’t answer to what I’ve done and what I want.

I’m very new to git, and I’ve made a “git clone https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware

Then I’ve created a new directory layouts/community/ergodox/azerty.
In this directory I’ve created those files:

  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/keymap.c
  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/simple_visualizer.h
  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/README.md
  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/visualizer.c
  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/rules.mk
  • layouts/community/ergodox/azerty/config.h

Now I’d like to make a pull request for the maintainers to merge my “community layout”.

I dont know what to do.
