I don't profess much knowledge of the Gnash development process, but
is it kosher to post patches to the dev list?

If patches can be sent to the dev list, then anyone can post 'em, and
anyone can review/comment on 'em. If the maintainer(s) of Gnash think
they're up to snuff, then they'll get merged.

I don't use bazaar much at all, but I assume that one can merge code
from different remotes, like in Git. So what about giving each
developer their own repo and then aggressively merging code, just as
long as it doesn't break anything?

That way, even if some changes don't initially get merged-in, they
wouldn't be completely lost. They'd still be there, ready to be
re-worked and re-submitted for inclusion.
