Not needed. Good patches are always welcome.  And if there is no current 
PR or other information indicating otherwise, a fix 'soon' is usually 
unlikely.

But what we mostly need is not more patches, but more reviews.  Anyone 
can act like a core dev up to the point of actually pushing the green 
merge button.
