Who said you have to use GitHub to make pull request? I don't believe
anyone mentioned GitHub but you so far.

I think patch as is are much more difficult to deal with, they need to be
maintained to be usable and with the speed at which we handle tickets, they
are rarely up to date.

Can tell, you're not looking at much at submission tickets by your comments
and try to make sense of what was provided :)

I for one welcome feature requests on trac and ask people we good
suggestions to create a trac entry.
That works as my todo list, it's there all available in one place, easily
accessible, it's not forgotten and can be put on the back burner without
forgetting it.

If you're not seeing this, you're missing the point.
