It's possible to allow write access, but it might be good if you posted
the patches here to begin with, just to make sure we're on the same page.

There are lots of moving parts to the autobuilder and (currently) we aren't
testing them all very regularly, so a little care is required in that
changing one thing to fix a problem here may cause issues for another
package over there.  We can usually spot that by glancing over the code but
it might be something that might not be obvious if you aren't familiar with
some of the other packages.

As previously mentioned, just posting them to the list as attachments is
sufficient.  If you want to get high tech (and don't mind dealing with
another version control system), git interfaces nicely with svn, handles
commits locally and will generate patch emails automatically.
