You should probably submit appropriate problem reports.   Create
patches with dif(1), and quote them inline in the pr.  For documentation,
the procedure is the same, you just patch the document SGML source.
The FDP primer would have more info on this.

If you have patches for the Maple port itself, it should probably be
discussed on the ports@ list, or perhaps even with the maintainer

I certainly don't speak for the Project itself, but this would seem
to be the canonical way of contributing back to FreeBSD ...
