Here is what I did when I submitted a patch to one of the comps file:

- Checked out the comps files from the git repository
- Made my changes. Please see [1]
- Discussed the patch on the release engineering list and request 
someone to push it on behalf of you.

Regarding the first question: I think the SciTech SIG list (this one) is 
the best place. You might want to kickstart a new thread with your 
proposal and initial thoughts.

Regarding the second question, I am not quite sure. SciTech SIG is 
definitely the more general group, so to speak. Integration is something 
which I personally am not too sure about..sorry.

Yes, please.

Great. Shall look forward to any further updates on this.
