I thought about providing a patches repository for such
purposes. But it's not doable, because the number of people
doing patches diversifies. And I cannot grand anonymous access
to such a repository.

That's why I appreciate announcing those patches in the wiki,
but providing the code from your own domains...

Well I've no problem when people discuss their patches on this
list. But I doubt it's a good idea to apply different patches to
vanilla dwm - or if you do so, provide thise combination as a
separate patch...
