Edit an externally hosted standard library

Most packages can be edited with ]dev DataFrames. Code in Julia’s Base and internal stdlibs (those hosted in GitHub - JuliaLang/julia: The Julia Programming Language) can be edited by cloning Julia and using Revise.track(Base) or Revise.track(Dates). What is a good workflow for testing my changes to SparseArrays (hosted at GitHub - JuliaSparse/SparseArrays.jl: SparseArrays.jl is a Julia stdlib) locally before making a PR?

Would it be possible to make ]dev SparseArrays carry out those steps for me?
