The debian Diff is not hiding patches in the upstream code. It is the
canonical place to publish them (at least for some (most?) of the debian
packages following policy).
PS: are we going to somehow react to the massive loss of trust into debian,
for example by publishing a new policy, a qa task force or anything? From
quite some discussions I know it is expected (however I dont claim to have a
practcable answer). I just wonder why we currently discuss Mailing List
netiqette instead of the current issue.
