Feel free to use github in that way if it helps you assemble your code, 
however right now the ONLY way to get changes back into the Cayenne 
source tree is by lodging a Jira with a patch attached. This is because 
this mechanism has been cleared by Apache legal team with regard to 
your agreement to release the code under the Apache license.

Conversation is occurring within Apache about making this simpler in 
the future, but for now... Jira patches.

As for timeline, that entirely depends on how clean your code is and if 
you can get a committer to review and commit them. The process will be 
simplified if you jump on this list and discuss your changes.

Oh, and welcome! We look forward to seeing what you have done with
