I would phrase it this way (or similar):

“Tiny patches do not require a ticket, so if you can commit it yourself,
or get a committer to do it right away, go ahead. Otherwise, please open
a ticket so that your contribution is not lost.”

(This sounds less like strict rules and more like “we care about your
contributions, please help us not lose them”.)
