In that case, you shouldn't be checking out the entire site. Just check
out the directory containing the page you want to edit, and submit a
patch. Forget about downloading tools and building, just submit the
patch (somebody with commit rights will have to verify the patch, anyway).

I think the process you describe could be significantly simplified for
non-committers with the changes I described above.

I doubt that we would see a flow of patches coming, though.
