This was one of the ideas behind `patch-tracking.debian.net'. It provides
a central repository to look for patches applied to Debian packages
intended for upstreams as well as other distributions.
A limitation is that it only provides access to patches already uploaded
to the archive, not those still hanging around in a VCS.
Maybe we should also include someone involved with the patch tracking
system in this discussion? We are talking about a cross-distro effort
for patch tracking, so they might be interested.
