The "X11CP repository" link on the web site goes to which has a README that, under
"Contributing", among other things lists "Source-code modification".

There is also a recent patch committed that explicitly says "add
compilation fixes" and "This makes gcc happier". See

By deduction, I would expect patches that allows old software to
compile and execute on modern systems, while remainining true to the
experience of running those applications in their original
environment, to qualify for inclusion.

There is also multiple points of contact listed, by way of which you
could almost certainly get an authoritative answer.
