If you patched any of my packages, please, provide the patch to me to
apply it. I would love to have it integrated in my packages also in
Debian in general.

As I said above, I think it's a really good effort for Debian, Ubuntu
and any other derivative to have integrated since  it'll help to us to
don't have broken packages in archive. Maybe it could be later
included in DAK for acceptance  checking avoiding problematic packages
to hit the enduser as possible.
