Resyncing patches is well below the level of understanding you should
probably have. This can often be done without any actual knowledge of C
whatsoever. My suggestion would be to actually get involved with Rockbox
development, and after you've had a few patches of your own creation
posted in flyspray, and understand Rockbox development "from the inside"
consider attending a DevCon.

As I said, it's a developer event, not a user event. People attending
should be doing so to work on code, not just "make an appearance." While
we welcome meeting users, it's called "DevCon" because it's a developer
conference, and the time is intended to be focused on actual
development. Generally we've been happy with relatively local people
stopping by for a while to watch, but one shouldn't put forth any
effort/cost to attend unless they're coming for the development work.
