Actually, using a git repo helps here. It helps you storing your patches,
organizing them in commits (and also commenting the commits), keeping your
patches up-to-date with pacman git, keeping working om them when they are not
fully finished or can be improved.
Also, if several commits depend on each other, you usually just put them all
in a branch.
If they are not related, you can then start creating other branches.

So I believe it can help, even if your repo isn't public.
git can generate mails, ready to be sent to the ML :)

Though, I have to admit I'm also curious to know what Dan or Aaron think
about your last patches (available on the ML, or in my sync branch).
