FWIW, when Bugzilla was on CVS I used to submit the occasional patch,
but the switch to bzr killed me. Like you, I couldn't get bzr running
and after trying exactly once, I gave up. I now upgrade Bugzilla using
tarballs and patches.
If I can fix small bugs fairly easily, I will, but I didn't feel like
struggling with bzr. If Mozilla uses a code review system like Gerrit
(I highly recommend it), it makes reviewing and accepting contributions
