Who is talking about that? 

The point is that patches should not been sent to a ml. I am subscribed
to around 50 different ml and if I receive only one attachment (let us
say around 1 MB) from each list I have 50 MB overhead in my mailbox. The
push model is not suitable for patches!

The issue tracker however is the supposed place for patches! That is why
it is called issue tracker. Why do you have the impression it would play
the role of rapidshare? I always talked about patches and contributions
that are interesting for the project and never said you should upload

That is only feasible for committers but not for John Doe that do not
has an apache account and want to send a diff.
