Interesting question. I can do this, but you can also act on your own.
Although I get a copy of all bug reports, it would be nice to let me know,
so I can take notes and doubled effort is avoided.
"Big" changes should probably discussed on this list first.
The only case where I would like to see the patch before is when you
implement dpkg-architecture support in debian/rules or when you fix any
linuxisms in debian/rules. This is mostly because this is a new feature and
there are some things that are still peculiar (even to me :)

The normal rules apply, that means, usually "normal" is appropriate.

Doesn't matter at all. Filing a bug report is not a developers privilege :)
You are doing well. If you have any qquestions about a necessary change, you
are always welcome to write to this list or me personally.
