Dude, I know less than nothing about Ubuntu, but I'm delighted that
it's giving people a money stream to work on Debian.
So can you explain what I'm misunderstanding? What sort of patches
are we talking about, and what is the publishing you're talking about?
I was alarmed because it sounded as if you had patches which you would
offer if there was an open bug, but if there was no open bug, you
would publish them, but not go out of your way to tell the Debian
developer about them. I'm glad that's not what's happening, but now I
don't know how to understand the statement of yours quoted above.
