I haven't ever got patches but if it does happen, some email address is 
preferable. I am currently maintaining several accepted spins: games, 
xfce and about a dozen localized spins. Among these, I only maintain a 
couple of packages. Almost 100% of the changes happen within the actual 
packages and are not spin specific. My effort is spend in developing a 
kickstart file, determining package changes, channeling feedback from 
users, brainstorming ideas with the respective maintainers, testing the 
images and some minimal changes for the live cd environment. What I 
would prefer not to do is getting bugs filed against the spin when it 
should have been filed against individual packages. I am not sure how 
exactly to accomplish that.
