I have experienced the same frustration many times.
Unfortunately, Lazarus uses centralized version control, which
effectively prevents
non-core developers from developing sizeable features in reasonable time.

Still, there is a hope for you -- Lazarus has a Mercurial and Git mirrors:


I advise to use one of them and prepare your feature as a series of patches.
This way, you do not have to wait for every patch, but for the whole series,
which is much more tolerable.
