The process is the other way 'round. Patches contributed to the SF
patch list may, after some consideration, be integrated into the CVS.
Changes integrated into the CVS need to be posted to the patches
tracker, unless either
a) the patch author has no write access to the CVS, or
b) the patch author is uncertain as to whether the patch is correct.

There is no procedure to do that. Instead, the CVS revisions of the
files being changed are recorded in the SF bug report, and the bug
report number is recorded in the CVS commit message, and in the CVS
version of the Misc/NEWS file. That is the place where you should get
a list of all significant changes.

I recommend you take a close look at the CVS. It is all inside.
