Open a pull request on github, and let the automated CI run its checks over
the code.

Tips to get things reviewed/merged faster:
- Make sure all your API additions are correctly documented
- Include unit tests. At a minimum a new vector provider needs a test which
inherits from ProviderTestCase. See tests/src/python/test_provider_mssql.py
for an example. This ensures that the provider behaves consistently with
what QGIS expects from a vector data provider.
