        I do not consider that reasonable, no.

        I would much rather prefer Ubuntu does to their upstream what
 I do with mine: I send distinct patch series, rebased to their current
 version, in their preferred forum: either thier BTS, or their mailing

        *That* is reasonable.  I don't have time to go trawling through
 whatever location the 162 Debian derivatives have set up with their
 patches; and I do not want a monolithic patch, with the derivative
 branding mixed in with changes I have made that they cherry picked on
 top of an ancient version of mine, all munged together.

        If you think that is reasonable, perhaps you should not be
 designing a patch management system?
