Well, you didn't include the patch, but that's not relevant.  AUCTeX can
only accept contributions that have their copyright assigned to the FSF,
and the only person who can make the decision what or what not
constitutes a contribution is its copyright holder.  Even if somebody
made a copyright assignment for AUCTeX, that does not mean that anybody
can grab any code of his and declare it contributed to AUCTeX.  He has
to submit it himself.
