Cool, I didn't realize that (and that there are also other committers).
I'll try submitting them in the coming days, I just need to figure out a
good way of making these patches.  I think I will be submitting the
changes to the test suite first, then the individual modules with their
corresponding tests.

Sorry for the late response, I was taking a small break after submitting
my final report.
