I tend to think of the derivatives patches effort as slightly
different since it aims at diffing Debian and $derivative rather than
$distro and $upstream like patch-tracker.

That said, integration of derivatives into patch-tracker.d.o was one
of the possibilities[1] I had thought of. I didn't yet start to work
on that but I would welcome any effort on it or other integration
