The latest cyrus imapd rpm at
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/mail has a serious bug
that causes local mail delivery using cyrus deliver to fail, with a
segfault in lmtpunix. I have put a patch together (from googling and
plagiarizing the work of others better than me) and put together a new
RPM with this patch. How does one go about submitting it to the
original maintainer or somehow make the corrections available to the
community?

branch package, add patch, verify that it builds and installs (and fixes
the bug after install), submit request back to original package. Terse
summary is here
