How's this coming?

On a related note, just having received maintainer account (and not
related directly to the Netwinder per se): If the source of a package
requires changes to compile on a Netwinder - how does one go about
notifying the source maintainer / incorporating these changes in the
source tree?

I have built a number of packages, in some cases by modifying just a
line or to (e.g. making it aware of the 'arm' architecture); but
obviously as long as someone else is source maintainer, I should not
submit these to master.

The documentation on http://www.debian.org/doc/ seems vague on this

Insights appreciated, thanks in advance.
