: Hi Garrett!
: You want to look at the send-pr(1) man page. For more information:

: bug reports; you can also submit change requests with it :)
Alternatively, find (several) someones that are active in the area and
send them the PR number. It never hurts to make contact with the
people active in an area, and drawing their attention to the bug with
patches may also motivate them to commit it. Chances are they'll be
the ones that are evaluating it anyway...
