Option to propose package update patches

Outdated packages are sometimes annoying but its hard to blame anyone who spends their free time to maintain them, so how can users best support package updates?

Is there a way to propose a new PKGBUILD through some kind of pull request?

Perhaps I am just not looking hard enough, but it seems to me there is currently no documented way to aid package maintainers short of becoming a trusted user.

Is that actually the case and if so, why is that?
As of now, I have several packages that are ahead of the official version because I tested, fixed and build the package locally and all that work has to be done by the maintainer again. I'm looking for a way to contribute this work effectively instead.
