Thanks for your offer to contribute.

R is developed via the svn repository. If you want to change patches for 
bugs from the repository. Please use a curent version of R-devel for 
fixing the issue and submit the patch as a diff against the R-devel 
sources and post it in form of an attachment in the bug tracker.
