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.
