Anyone can submit a patch.  Just don't get depressed if it doesn't  
get put into core.  After adding a patch, add the keyword "has-patch"  
to the ticket and maybe "needs-testing" if you think there may be  
server-related or browser-related issues.  You can also put up 2nd- 
opinion if it is a feature addition or if you are unsure that your  
way of fixing the bug was best.

If it's a big patch that'll require a lot of work, it might be good  
to get some other opinions before starting... just so you don't end  
up wasting a lot of time going in the wrong direction.
