No, just send in a patch which is the easiest way for all involved
people. I won't pull any code from anyone's private repository, sorry.

The patch tracker at Sourceforge is not enabled and won't be. I think
the mailing list is a pretty good place to send and discuss patches.
It worked well in the past, why changing that?
