I don't neccessarily want to say, that the bad feeling is not
justified. After all I never received a patch for one of my packages
from Ubuntu. But I want to make sure, that we stay objective. Of course
it would be nicer if patches were reported automatically to us.
Yes, that would strengthen the community. But we cannot require
it and so we cannot tell that Ubuntu violates anything.
