How to collaborate on a gist

To colaborate on a gist:

  1. Clone your gist repo locally
  2. Add your friend’s fork as a remote e.g. if your friend is named Cindy: git remote add-url cindy
  3. Fetch your friend’s commits: git fetch cindy/master
  4. Merge your friend’s changes into your repo: git merge cindy/master
  5. Push the changes back to GitHub: git push origin/master

That is something else than collaboration?

@AndersBillLinden, the instruction above is more about maintaining your own fork. Looks like there is no way to share "edit" permissions for gist.
