I understand that is a legacy repository but because you talked about
to send a patch upstream i was trying to understand if there is any
chance that the patch will be accepted.

So when you have talked about to send the patch upstream didn't know
about the legacy status of this repository?

Nevertheless the https://git.enlightenment.org/legacy/imlib2.git/
repository gets updated even if it has the "legacy" word in the
prefix, but it's the only one so maybe it's just an exception.
