If they're in CVS, the best way to do it is probably to send a diff of
your changes (which you can download from
linked from that page) and send it to the upstream developers, either
to their mailing list or perhaps attaching it to an upstream bug.

If upstream is inactive, you might be better off just maintaining your
own branch on Launchpad and becoming the new maintainer.

Tangentially, it looks like that branch deletes the .cvsignore file
and so on, which might be appropriate if you're taking over the
branch, but probably not so much if you're contributing a patch to
cvs.  But that can easily be filtered out when it's applied.

We do have some ideas for improving the "sending patches upstream"
story in lp and hopefully they will get implemented at some point.
