The best way to have your patch added is to either
a) if its a non-core library like Xlib, send to the maintainer.
you can do this with darcs send -o /tmp/my.patch
And then attach and mail that patch to the library maintainer.
(should be listed in the .cabal file)
b) if its for a core library, like 'base' , you follow the
library submission process,
which also has some useful advice that applies to case a).
In this case you should follow part a).
