I think that is the best way to manage contributions (of all sizes). I think the Kernel Janitors and the "Trivial Patch Monkey" maintain some patchsets, but perhaps there should be more official git trees. For example: linux-whitespace linux-trivial linux-warnings linux-janitors could be maintained separately and merged into linux-testing or -mm at convenient merge times.
