Not at all. You'll be committing to your own *local* repository.
Technically speaking there is no "master"; this is a distributed version
control system. The only way that my repository is a "master" is in a
social sense.

Do commit to your own repositories; that's the only way you'll then be
able to use things like git-send-email (or git-format-patch) to then
send the patches *out* again. Or you could just push your repository to
somewhere like github and ask me to pull from there, instead of sending
patches in email.
