My github repo is not a fork of the gitpan repo. Would a fork be better?

Upon reading, I don't think it will because

If you tag your releases in a consistent manner and publish the location of your repository, gitpan doesn't offer anything new to the developer.

Gitpan is a read-only repository built from tarballs you uploaded to cpan, mostly useful to those who download from cpan :)

And if so, how would I push changes I've already made to my local repo to a local clone of a fork of a gitpan repository?

I don't think you need to, but I think this answers it

How can I merge gitPAN's history with my module?

If you are the owner of a CPAN module and have an existing, but
incomplete, repository you can fill in the history using gitPAN. The
technique is outlined in this article.
The only things that might change are the push/pull targets

In general, are there docs/tutorials describing work flows using github for managing perl distributions? I recall a lot of discussion around the time that gitpan got started, but am not having had much luck with search engines.

I haven't see one.

I've read Git for Computer Scientists,

I've seen A one-hour talk by Randal Schwartz describing what Git is, and why it should be used over other revision control systems,

and I've skimmed Git Magic a few times and Everyday GIT With 20 Commands Or So a few more times.

This has helped me muddle along, but I mostly work solo, don't publish much, and occasionally submit small patches anonymously.

I haven't had to resolve conflicts the git way, and I don't care much about attribution, I only care that the correct user name and email address are exposed in the logs, and not a history of computers i've used.
