That's quite a scary difference.

Options are (and may depend on your corporate policies):
* supply patches to mailing lists
* add them to the PR database (at least they're tracked and not lost)
* get the hardware and patches into the hands of someone with commit
access, so they can test and submit the patches.
* be sponsered to become a developer (which I'm happy to sponser if
you're interested) and have direct CVS commit access
