I do think that a patch queue is an easier way to maintain a set of changes
to the original code base, as we do at least for Roundup (don't know about
MoinMoin).  However, I don't do the maintenance, so I won't try to prescribe
a workflow to the people doing the actual work.

Big +1.  This should be framed and put somewhere in the contribution guide.
