It is always the best idea to directly contact the module maintainers,
and ask for permission to commit changes and additions, and/or bring
your patches to their attention. I for one have been (and I am) quilty
of not doing much maintanance on modules showing up as maintained by me,
but in case I see some positive takeover offer, I mostly grant and let
the module evolve. Since project module is an integral part of the
Drupal project, and is heavily used on drupal.org, it is a different
matter however. Anyway, you need to contact the maintainer(s) directly.
