git will certainly help in doing so.

But what Gary also wants is the knowledge, that we 4 (you, Paul, Jim, me) have:
what is a good starting point and what additional patches are recommended
on top of that.

For today, I would say, take as starting point the day before the <time.h>
and <string.h> changes, a month ago. Then each of us can give Gary a list of
recommended ChangeLog entries that he can integrate in his "branch".

Hardly. Often it's clear only after two or three weeks whether a patch
was good or not. We don't know at the moment the patch is committed.
