Indeed - I thought, given the documentation on the site, that the correct
way to submit patches was to the developers list, with [PATCH] on the front.
Is this wrong? I can see that many other people are doing the same thing.

Yep. Being behind an aggressive firewall, in order to generate patches I
have to manually get the files to diff against. When they change, I have to
go through the process all over again as the uncommitted change is now out
of sync. Evidently changing the copyright notice is of a higher priority.

True. Its also frustrating to look through the logs to find that someone has
created an enhancement that you were thinking of doing or need, but that
nobody did anything with it so it's possibly stale with respect to the
current source tree. Yes I could do a custom build but it's a huge pain in
the bum!

Concrete example:

That would have been really useful to me.
