Right now, I don't think any of the committers are actively adding new 
features to XSLF. All improvements are driven by community contributions. 
If you think a new feature is worth adding, and you're willing to put the 
effort in, we'll be glad of the additoon :)

As Dominik mentioned, smaller patches are easier to review and apply than 
large ones. Bugzilla entries are a little easier for us to keep track of 
than github pull requests, but but we can work with github requests quite 
happily too. Given that you have a large patchset in git, using github PRs 
might be simplest, as you could polish off some work then raise a PR for 
that bit, then work on the next area and raise a PR etc
