One thing I'd add — you'll have to enter your address into your Trac profile even though it's already in your wp.org profile. The two don't sync.

1) Make sure you set yourself up to be cc'ed on all comments on your ticket
so if there are comments or questions you can reply.

2) After 3.1 is out the door (and there has been a day or two to rest), you
might want to pop into #wordpress-dev on IRC and ask if anyone is around to
take a look at your ticket.  It might take a few times to find one of the
main core people, but it's a good opportunity to get feedback on your patch.

3) Stay patient and don't take it personel if your ticket doesn't get any
traction.  Just work on getting eyes on it in a calm and respectful manner.

Thanks for working on your first patch!
