See the HACKING file in the cvs distribution for the long version, but,
basically, it needs:

     1)  The patch, submitted to address@hidden (whose charter
     makes clear that this means releasing the code under the GPL),

          a)  ChangeLog entry
          b) test case
          c)  documentation in the cvs.texinfo file.

     2)  Support from the developers, which usually requires
     general usefulness and/or some sort of support from the CVS
     community in general.  It sounds like the rlog portion of this
     patch has some support and I certainly have no objections, but
     I also have no desire/time to do the work still required for
     part 1 above.  The list portion of this patch has been bandied
     about many times on this list and as far as I know, no one has
     contributed a convincing argument as to why the available
     workarounds were not sufficient.  Search the mail archives for
     some of the discussion.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.  Do not walk ahead of me, for
I may not follow.  Do not walk beside me, either.  Just leave me alone.
