It looks a lot more sane now but previously patches were split out into
packaging differences, upstream differences, and branding differences
(where possible).

This was a lot more useful than the current situation which seems to
just have one large diff again.  Not to say that making this large diff
available /isn't/ useful just that if the old code could be resurrected
to split it out further more people might take it on.
