We certainly allow these type of patches, and fpm2 wouldn't be the
first in the repo to include this sort of thing. I would personally
accept the patches blindly, since you wrote them. However, I don't have
interest in maintaining the fpm2 SlackBuild anymore, so I think it
would be better off in the hands of someone who clearly cares about it.

You can send patches now, so the maintainer change happens in master
(for 14.2) or wait for submissions to open, either is fine.
