Since the source is public anyway in the form of on CTAN or tarballs(?)
I do not see the point in not publishing the repository.

And if you do not like the patch you do not need to apply it. You are
still the only one with write access.

It would just make it easier for others to work with the source and to
not double work, since they always see your latest work.
