I wonder how that works best, being on the receiving side of such requests
from time to time.

I guess that to scale, that would be better done by:

1. Reporter tests if the patch applies (and works) on the desired

2. Reporter sends the request, with the above test results, to
stable@xxxxxxxxxx, following whatever conventions are to get the
attention of the stable release maintainers.
