Does this make any sense? What do you want to say?
What do you have read in my post to conclude something strange like
that? Is it the heat?

Why the whole community should trust me? Trust in what?

You know that Debian consists of many thousand packages developed by
thousands of untrusted developers and then you have problems when one of
those developers send patches to Debian security team for check and

A fact is that there are many fixes available which are not introduced
in Debian.

I do now the fixing myself and it is an offer to send my patches to
speed it up.
That's all.
