Almost, I suspect.

I just took a look at the grub website (http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/) for 
the first time in a few months.  I spent a few minutes trying to navigate my 
way to a browsable list of submitted-but-unmerged patches.  I couldn't find 
I suspect someone more familiar with the website would have found it, so I 
guess I'm just suggesting that you/someone make it easier to find.
It's probably just a simple matter of putting a button/link on the main page 
(probably in the download section) that submits the appropriate query to the 
BTS when clicked.

P.S. A mail client I've tinkered with in the past has a webpage listing 
unsupported patches.  It's maintained by someone who isn't one of the core 
maintainers for the program.  It's at http://www.thewildbeast.co.uk/sylpheed/
Anyone (with a web account) could step up and volunteer to maintain such a 
page for grub.
