I'd say rather ask for advice on this list first. See Jess' feedback on
the proposed patch for instance, we do not want to bother package
maintainers with patches which are actually improper.
Also, rather than reporting against the Debian package, it is usually
better to directly send to upstream, since that's where it will have to
land in the end anyway. That's also much better for discussing about the
patch, avoiding to go through the Debian maintainer for no good reason.
