It happens a fair bit in that people prepare updated packages and
someone with a commit bit imports them.  This is minor collaboration in
some ways, but it's easier all around than using PRs, and I think it
helps a lot.  I've also made changes to packages being worked on by
others when they post about them with questions.  Agreed that having
more of this would be good.
