I'd like to discuss the diff or the delta between Debian and an arbitrary Derivative. What are we derivatives patching? Are there patches that should get back into Debian? (I'd bet there are because some of the derivatives are quite high-quality and have the freedom to do interesting things that you can't do with a large project like Debian.)
How do we bring patches back into Debian? I'd like to do this with Maemo - identify patches via some kind of automated data mining and then push back the relevant patches to Debian. Has anyone else embarked on a project like this?
