[ODE] patches/unstable etc...

Hi all!
I know this is an old topic but I just still don't get how the patches are
working. There have been couple of patches on the maillist that seem to be
very useful (or least worth trying). As far as I understood the unstable
branch in CVS was created for these kind of stuff, but I don't see any of
these patches in the CVS UNSTABLE. Even for example the "position-correcting
constraints" patch by Adam Moss that appeared in April is not there.
So if I want to try some of these patches I should apply them using the
textual difference format that you guys attach to mails? How? Manualy or is
there some utility for this?
And if let's say I have a bugfix, what should I do? Create a diff w.r.t.
current CVS head and send it to the list?

The fact is I have a bug fix ... see this thread
http://q12.org/pipermail/ode/2005-June/016060.html. I cleaned and optimized
bit the code and added joint feedback printout functionality to
test_boxstack, so one can see clearly that what the original code returns is
completly wrong (feedbacks summed from all joints for each body) and the new
at least appears to be correct.
I think this could save time and nerves to someone else, so if someone could
answer my questions, I would appreciate it very much.
