I completely recognise that in my own work on some parts of Debian; I
feel much more motivated to do something if I can just commit the fix
to a VCS rather than file a bug-with-patch. Often, the reason I
technically can commit is very different than the work I do
(e.g. common SVN repo of a team where I take care only of some of the
team's packages, but I commit fixes when finding problems with other
packages I don't feel responsible for / a maintainer of).
