Please see <https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Contribution%20checklist>.
Patches and ChangeLog entries go in emails to libc-alpha, not Bugzilla.
The change itself goes as a patch; the ChangeLog entry goes separately in
the patch submission email rather than as part of the diff (and likewise
the addition of any fixed bug number to NEWS doesn't go in the patch
submission, it's expected to be done by the committer along with adding
the ChangeLog entry to the top of the ChangeLog file).
In the case of a *new* locale, also make sure to include the addition to
the SUPPORTED file in the patch you submit.
If you want someone to commit a patch for you, it's especially important
to get all the details exactly right including the exact patch proposed
for commit being included in an email, making it completely unambiguous
exactly what patch version is proposed for commit with exactly what
ChangeLog entry for what ChangeLog file.
One version of what I think is a new locale you submitted includes a
version of wording referring to "GLIBC", contrary to what was said in
<https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2013-02/msg00433.html> - 'No formal
text we use says "GLIBC"' (and as discussed elsewhere, when such a short
form is used informally, it's in lowercase, glibc not GLIBC).
