If you have a patch, that includes testing the new code, and you're
willing to do some follow up work to address any test failures on the
VTK dashboard machines after the fact, I can help you get your patches
through the review process.
(But I can only help you get it through, I don't have the bandwidth to
do the work myself...)
Let me know,
