I definitely encourage that patches for upstream bugs be sent

It's common for Debian to have patches not in upstream.  Often, in my
experience, it's not because of upstream refusal but due to differing
priority or differing release cycles.  I generally have a number of
patches for Boost that upstream takes multiple releases to

If you have a patch for the problem, I encourage you to submit a
Debian bug report as well as the upstream one, and link them.
