If I understood correctly, your main point is that using bugtracker for committing patches is very painful (I agree).
I understood differently: I thought Victor's complaint is that some of his patches stay uncommitted for a long time.
Not only my patches. I spoke about my issues because I know them better than the other ones ;-)
Victor wants to commit small changes without review.
That's true. Open an issue for trivial changes takes to much time.
I hope that the discussion of my svn acount would benefit to the whole Python process ;-)
