They have to be lucky enough to pick up the attention from one of the
people with CVS write access.

In practice, the maintainers usually spend quite some work on them,
as I'm sure you've noticed.

When someone with CVS write access decides to look at it.
Some very good patches have been lost because of lack of attention.
Code in CVS is reviewed and will appear in the next version.

If other projects manage patches with CVS, how do they distinguish
experimental, partly incompatible or incomplete code from the main
branch, and how does code get merged into the main branch?
I can see how bringing patches into CVS would be useful.
