Well, you might need to register to create issues or add
comments/attachments to existing issues, but you do not need to do that
if you want to post a patch to the mailing list. Of course it's
sometimes preferred to attach your patch to an issue where it's relevant
to an existing issue and the patch is not going to be applied
immediately, but there is also a patch manager who watches for patches
posted to the mailing list and then files issues about them or attaches
them to relevant issues if the consensus is that these patches should
probably be applied.
