It looks to me like the wording of the 3rd paragraph of 5.11.2 is a bit (too) strong: one must include the patch. It might be relaxed a bit so that the maintainer is still allowed to implement the changes the way s/he intends, rather than having to include the very patch sent to the BTS. > This is why the last time one of my package had a NMU, I just ignored > it instead of acknowledging it (the upload I made would have closed > the bug as well). In which case, I'd probably dosomething like ACK'ing the NMU, adding a “thanks to $nmuer, although the final implementation differs [details]”. Mraw, KiBi.
