In general the best way to do this is to submit tickets, and email  
the maintainer about them. If the maintainer doesn't respond in 3  
days, or if there is no maintainer, email this list with the tickets  
(be sure to state the maintainer didn't respond after 3 days if  
that's the case).. Generally somebody looks at the tickets and  
commits them if they're fine, or tells you what's wrong if they aren't.
