One of the benefits of attaching patches to a JIRA issue (this could be 
to fix a bug or could be an enhancement) is that there is a "Patch 
available" checkbox near the bottom of the screen that you can 
check\tick in the JIRA issue that enables the patch to show up in a 
weekly mail to the dev list with a title "[jira] Unassigned patches: 
week of MM-DD-YYYY", so there is less chance that your patch goes unnoticed.

If you have any questions on how to use JIRA, let us know.
