In general the glibc community maintains patchwork, which mostly means
Siddhesh and I maintain the day-to-day administration parts. 


So you're talking to the right people. 

I'm TO'ing libc-help so we have a public record of this.

Let us look at the problem right now. I see no recent patches from you at
all. I see only:
Which I marked superseded because later patches fixed it.

Your most recent patch should have been this one:

The attachment requirements are here:

Your Apple Mail client is using:
Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

I expect the combination of application/octet-stream and
quoted-printable is causing your patches to be dropped.

It would be best to have:
Content-Type: text/*; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Or similar. Your Apple Mail client is making the attachment
look too much like "binary data."

If you fix that I expect you're patches will go into patchwork properly
which helps with review from others.

Alternatively just inline your patches, but I don't know how badly Apple Mail
will mangle your patches. On Thunderbird (which I use in conjunction with Mutt)
it is possible to configure it properly to not line wrap, and always use
text/plain for body content.
