That's why blender should use Mercurial (or git), where "patches" are
just merged (a merged branch actually), not committed by someone else.
It also helps track down copyrights better as every piece of code is
indeed committed by the person who wrote it, and it can be seen in the
log ;) 

It would also eliminate the need to create many branches in the
public development server to have separate development for new
features (or having to maintain a patch set manually), just for
branches blender.org is interested to host (like the ones that are
created right now).
