I assume that once I have a diff based on current SVN - I open a
ticket requesting it to be committed?

A ticket is a good way to track so that it isn't completely forgotten in case it falls out of everyones in-box, but I would suggest starting by posting separate patches to the mailing list, each of which solve one type of problem.  We can review those better in the short term and the resulting version control history will also be more useful.
