Sure, I can try to find time to help... Are you on IRC? Otherwise, I've
just revealed a magic trick to attract my attention by email.

You pretty much summed it up :-) Commit everything is a nice patch
series to a topic branch, check tests & indentation, create tentative
NEWS entry and push for review...

I mean, run the unittests (make tests -- that's it?),

Yes, that's always a good idea.

check if the code is formatted (make indent -- correct?), 

Yes; in addition, Travis is supposed to do it when you push your feature
branch, and inform by email if there is a problem.

update the NEWS file (how?), anything else?

When the ticket it closed, it should be added to the news page:

From there, it makes it into the release NEWS; see the old one here:
