For open upstream sources, suggestions are "two|ten a penny"|"dime a

They typically expect you to make the necessary implementation code 
changes on a fork of the project on Github, and send them a Pull Request 
(PR, or a patch file) referencing the commit, including changes to 
documentation and release notes.

They and we are volunteers, so have to choose where we spend our time.
