Hey Jonathan,

This is awesome!  I think for the most part you should commit your  
patches directly, once you have the approval of the maintainer of a  
given library, which is sounds like you have for cyclone.

For the rest of the libraries, the author is no longer the maintainer,  
so you can start by asking here.
