Assuming you mean patches to OpenStack components, they've been
working together with the upstream project teams there for a few
years to integrate their changes and have mostly reached parity as
far as I understand. What's left is changes to system libraries,
kernel configurations, and so on, to tune low-level performance
characteristics for their specific deployment targets.

Up until very recently, they've been purely a CentOS fork, but with
Red Hat announcing a shift in focus for CentOS and the fact that
they hadn't completed a switch from CentOS 7 to 8 yet, they've
decided that having a more stable alternative basis for their
distribution might be in their best interests... but they've only
just begun to investigate what building a Debian derivative might
mean for them (for example, they've been relying on OpenSuse's OBS
to build all their distro packages up till now, and that may not be
a great fit for trying to build forks of fundamentally interrelated
Debian packages).
