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 
a breeze.
