Question How and where can I submit a patch?

I've now got a little blue light on the stick and /var/run/dmesg.boot shows recognition of the device:
ugen4.2: <GlobespanVirata> at usbus4
upgt0: <GlobespanVirata NETGEAR WG111, class 0/0, rev 2.00/10.40, addr 2> on usbus4
> usbconfig -u 4 -a 2 dump_device_desc
ugen4.2: <NETGEAR WG111 GlobespanVirata> at usbus4, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON

To some extent I have network functionality:
> ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev upgt0
> ifconfig wlan0 up scan
> ifconfig wlan0 list scan
...shows my local wireless networks

> ifconfig upgt0
shows 'associated' but
> ifconfig wlan0
shows 'no carrier'

I guess all I have to do now is set up /boot/loader.conf, /etc/rc.conf and /etc/supplicant.conf as indicated by jb_daefo.

But can anyone tell me how and where to submit a patch for WG111V2_2 to if_upgt and also perhaps a patch to the upgt(4) man page? I've not actually generated a patch before so any links or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks very much to shep for those links which were instrumental and to BSDFan666 for confirming I needed to get the stick recognised before I started configuring.

Thanks also to jb_daefo, your advice now comes into play for me getting the network selected and authenticated.
