That's true. Often what will happen is that people who patiently have a fix
for a plugin or a test will work on it on their own and then by the time
the contributors see this, the patch doesn't work cleanly or something has
changed and the code is stale.

Can you point to these? I think pinging the dev list is probably the best
way to get someone to look at your fixes faster.  I know that everyone
involved will work on their new feature and pull requests by themselves
will probably fall through the cracks.

You are, but posting here is probably the fastest way to get people to look
at your changes.  Simple GitHub pull requests don't make it to my inbox too
often.
