You have to configure sendmail (or any other MTA of your choice) to use
a proper mail server (e.g your ISP's) as a smarthost/mailrelay. Perhaps
at least a reference to the according sendmail documentation should be
added to the send-pr man page.

Apart from that effort is being put into bringing a web based submission
form back online (the former one has been disabled since the GNATS
system was heavily spammed).

Good question. Every single volunteer giving up is a pity.

IMHO the best solution is to fix your mailing system. If you can't help
it you could try and post your patch to [EMAIL PROTECTED], but I wonder
whether that list will reject your mail, too. Aside from that the
preferred way of submitting a bug report/patch is send-pr.
