If we refactor this properly to be UI independent it will open the door to
things like
using Debian's APT for updates! That would be awesome.

For core, it is always via patches and issues.

Depends on if you want to get feedback early or feel you have a solid
approach that is working.

I would say since this is your first attempt at core contributions, submit
partial stuff to get feedback. The process can be slow and may dishearten
the newbies at first. But if you persist, things will get done.
