I have to disagree. A patch in the Debian BTS is a fix state. It will
be there even when the remote site goes down, drops off the net, is
reorganised, the file renamed or moved, or whatever. You'd have the
benefit of "everything at one place" and only need to download the BTS
mbox in order to work on this particular bug.
We all know Linux is great... it does infinite loops in 5 seconds.
