You are proposing a patch to gfortran, which is part of gcc.
The guidelines for accepting contributions are spelled out on
the gcc website.

If your patch is non-trivial, we need copyright papers from you
assigning copyright of any changes to the gcc source tree to
the FSF.  Do you have a copyright assignment?

In order to be included into gcc, your proposed patch needs to be
regression-tested and accompanied by relevant test cases proper
ChangeLog entries.

If these conditions are met, then post the patch to
address@hidden and address@hidden  Usually there
will be a discussion of the patch, possibly leading to requirements
for changes.  Finally, if all goes well, a maintainer will approve
the patch and (if you don't have commit privileges) commit it.

That's the way gcc and gfortran maintenance works.  In practice,
it works pretty well.

Best regards
