I recently posted a patch which fixes some g++ 4.3 compiler errors and
warnings but it was mostly ignored. I was forced that's why to create
bug reports (which you call ticket, don't know why) for each library
(which is time consuming especially without email interface) (#1332 --

I assumed trivial bugs such as

Index: boost/gil/extension/dynamic_image/apply_operation_base.hpp
--- boost/gil/extension/dynamic_image/apply_operation_base.hpp (Revision 40416)
+++ boost/gil/extension/dynamic_image/apply_operation_base.hpp (Arbeitskopie)
@@ -100,7 +100,7 @@
     // Create specializations of apply_operation_fn for each N 0..100
 // unary application
 template <typename Types, typename Bits, typename Op>

which lead to real compile errors (at least using -pedantic) will be
fixed during minutes but I was wrong!

Of course I know that not everyone can react as fast but why do not commit
other people such elementary stuff? Instead many simple patches are rotting
in the bug database. Is this useful?

Is it enforced somewhere that only the maintainer is allowed to commit patches
for his library? I understand of course that not trivial stuff which needs to
be analysed cannot be handled this way but there are so many trivial patches
just ignored ...
