Ugg.  One of those android bugs where 95% of the discussion is "FIX IT
NOW!".  If you can provide any other references with a better content /
less noise, would be much appreciated.

Contributor and Committer are two different "statuses" within the project.
 We can accept contributions from folks - who sign the ICLA - but who are
not yet committers.  (I believe that's right anyway!).

I don't necessarily follow all the Android bits going on in Cordova, so I
don't know if you've submitted a pull request for the patch you've created
or not - but I don't see one via a cursory search of the -dev mailing list.
 That would be the first step.  Fork the repo, commit the patch
to your fork, issue a pull request.

Before doing even that, perhaps you can post a URL to the patch that you
already have, just so we can take a look.  I didn't see an obvious link to
such a patch in your note or the the Android bug list.
