You should use the Gitlab instead. Click "Code" on the right-hand side of the Trisquel web site, sign up, and make a merge request.

As legimet said, you should be able to merge your changes into trisquel easier, if you use the gitlab instance and send a merge request to the "belenos" branch. If you want help doing so, please join the #trisquel irc channel, and feel free to ask for a guided tour ;)

On the other side, I wasn't able to find any of your recent patches in the development mailing list:
