I recommend opening a bugzilla bug against component dovecot. Here's the 
current list for that component:


When a new version comes out for some program, I just open an RFE bug and 
paste the release announcement. That provides the downstream packagers a 
place to track the progress of the update, as well as a place to attach any 
special patches (such as the ones you mention).

Since 1.0.0 is now in Rawhide, no request for that is needed, so you'll 
want to open a new bug to request modifications to patches in that package. 
Open the bug against Fedora Core, "devel" version, etc.

For those wanting to check out the Rawhide package, here's one mirror:
