You could put them into the bug tracker ;).

Apart from the .pc changes (which are rather minor afair), we have quite
some patches in there and are working on getting them in better shape.
I have a change the variants in PCL already to be closer to upstream
(maybe that would be an example for arch as well) and the stuff in the
hg will hopefully get better soon.

Afaik not, why do you ask?
