It would appear that the truly effective way of submitting patches is
to ask how to do it on this list; it would appear that Petko has taken
note of at least two things I'd previously added to PITS as a response
to my message. :) I'll note the rest on PITS & pmwiki-devel rather
than spam this list any more than it deserves.

Partly, but partly also because PITS ends up being a secondary
discussion forum to the mailing lists. For me at least it's much
easier to send a message to the list rather than edit PITS. I don't
have a solution to propose for this, though, other than a more
aggressive policy to handle or close issues.

The main list of PITS is also a bit discouraging, as the first issue
from this year that's listed is fifteenth on the list, and the first
three are all from 2004. Perhaps a default sort by inverse creation or
latest edit date would be more useful?
