  I believe this is wrong. In words of one of the sbuild package
  co-maintainers, "the Debian package is the fork, while the sbuild in
  wanna-build is upstream" [1]. And upstreams are not required forward
  patches to their respective Debian maintainers, are they?; they just
  make new versions publicly available, as already happens here.
