Two options:

  run cvs diff (with -N if needed, e.g. if you created patches).  Also
  write the commit message that should be used, if you can.  use send-pr
  to send this.

  get an account for pkgsrc-wip, described at and
  commit an updated version.  Place in COMMIT_MESSAGE or similar the
  text that should be used for the commit to pkgsrc proper.  After
  verifying it with pkglint and building with PKG_DEVELOPER=yes, feel
  free to send a note here.

The first option is the traditional path.  A number of people with
commit access to pkgsrc prefer the second option.
