I do not know about core but with packages in EPEL (very important to 
CentOS) I have found that the few times I have submit a patch, the 
maintainer is usually very communicative and unless my fix is 
problematic (happens) it usually is applied within a few weeks.

I've never submitted a patch to a core package though.
