How to push to a non Samba Team member branch on gitlab ?

I'm working with a new contributor here:
and want to push a modified version of their patch
that corrects some things to help them work with
us here on the Team. Pushing to their branch
helps them see what I corrected so is a very
desirable thing to do.
The gitlab page above shows their branch name as:
and clicking the "copy" button for this MR gives
the text string: master, which certainly doesn't
seem right as a branch name to push to.
For another Samba Team member MR normally I'd just do:
git push gitlab +HEAD:<copy name>
where <copy name> is the string copied when
I click the "copy" button on the MR. For example,
"copy" gives: dmulder/smb3_posix_ext
which would allow my changes to overlay the
changes in the MR.
But what is the magic incantation to push my changes
to this MR ?
git push gitlab +HEAD:vporpo/samba:master
fails, as does:
git push gitlab +HEAD:vporpo:master
I can't see any logic or patterns in this, or am I just
missing something about git (again).
