Have done a quick search I see you mostly patch 3.10. Is that right?
In the repositories I do have 3.10 kernels, but they are not a focus
for me. There have been issues reported with 3.10, but so far as I can
see no code to demostrate exactly what they are, still, I have doubt
on the 3.10 kernel as a long term deployment option. The situation
will get more urgent as Debian Jessie approaches release, and I'll be
looking at finding a stable, but more recent, kernel to deploy. Until
then 3.10 does not interest me as much as 3.2 and 3.4 on which many of
use have built our systems.

I would be happy to have a separate kernel package to test patches
with, giving it a different name to the beng kernels, but I would be
unable to update it too frequently, but I would need to following
things in order to make this practical: the presence of the patch,
documented as to its use, consistently named, on a web site somewhere.
I know you already post this information to the mailing list, but I
need to be able to go to central store of information that I can have
a look at, see what's available and set off some compilation.

Sorry if its a weak offer. I'm incredibly busy at the moment.
