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" . 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.
