I think the general approach that works for our benevolent dictator
should work nicely here as well, i.e., post patches to the list,
and if they don't get the attention you desire, send a reminder from
time to time.

Attachments are fine. URLs are tolerable, as long as they point to
something that produces plain text when the link is fed to "wget".

Bugzilla has one benefit, and that's that it keeps everything
related to the issue together and accessible with a single URL.
The big drawback is that it quickly turns into the proverbial
haystack, and it's quite easy to miss even new bugs ...

I'm sure there's some parallel universe where it does :-)

It seems to drag on perilously ...

Yeah, let me post an updated summary, and then let's heave at it.
