So, that means that *you* will decide which patches are ready for
mainline inclusion and Lars only merges your branch from time to time?
What's the difference to creating a fork then? Having one maintainer and
several developers that the maintainer pulls from makes sense if there
are loads of patches and/or different subsystems - it allows for sharing
work efficiently. Or if there's a lot of patches that need to be rebased
on each other and you want to assist with doing all the conflict
resolution (which obviously isn't the case here).

If you really want to help, what I'd suggest is:

* Review and test patches. Reply to mails, give feedback and tell
  contributors if there's anything that should probably be fixed. The
  more people review, the better it helps Lars.

* Try to contact Lars and ask him if there's anything else you can do to
  improve his response time. If he doesn't react for another 4 weeks or
  says that he won't be able to spend any time on developing cgit in the
  near future, we should find a new maintainer or start off a fork...
