Have you checked out http://wiki.freedesktop.org/wiki/AccountRequests?
It has info on how to request an account so you can check your changes
in. If the driver is currently broken, I doubt anyone will have a
problem with you taking it over (will be good to have someone looking
after it :). Once you have an account, make sure you also update the
MAINTAINERS file in the xorg-docs package so people know who to talk to
if there's a problem.
