I'm knew to this, didn't know there was a patch tracker.

Welcome to the group :)

I mailed the patches to the list because I was asked to do it.
The base code is version 1.4, the patches have to be changed
to be applied to the current version.
I posted the compiled code for evaluation, if the patches are
to be applied I'll re-do them for the current version.

I'd go the other way. We can't consider patches for inclusion until we
see them based off the current code (well.. more current then 1.4)

Try and convert what you have to several small patches and put them in.
You are much more likely to get them accepted. "I'll do it once they are
accepted" won't gain you much ground.
