I agree that there's enough active development that groff should have
a more frequent release cycle than it has of late (though I understand
the lack of manpower to spearhead this).

I think any open bugs that include a patch should have that patch
applied or rejected (either as WONTFIX or with reasons given why the
patch needs improvement).  Several are hanging there in limbo, not
applied but with no feedback on whether they have deficiencies or
simply haven't been looked at yet.  (In particular, #57638 documents a
regression introduced in v1.22.4 and includes a patch to unregress
it.)  It seems that bug reports with patches ought to be the
lowest-hanging fruit on the savannah tree.
