That is not so easy if you don't own your server - find one with darcs installed or with ghc :-(

...and that's the main reason why I don't use push - must use rsync, since ssh
is the only thing I can get on host server.

Therefore, others can just pull my changes and/or send their patches via email
and I, as Kevin wrote, "...may apply it to my local repo as if I had made the 
change myself."
