We simply don't do it. Which brings lots of benefits:

1) We can be sure upstream look-a-like bugs are not triggered by our patches.
2) Users can report bugs upstream and they will probably be valid. Less time 
wasted by all parties.
3) We do not become incompatible with upstream and most sane distros out 
4) We don't chase pure marketing hype by shipping unfinished and unreleased 
software in supposedly "stable" release. That's not what our users expect.
5) That's how we do it and our practises are not likely to change any time
