I do understand the response, because part of the strategy mentioned
*is* not to provide plain-text patches, but instead manage them,
possibly jointly with other distributions, in a midstream repository.

From the comments it looks like most developers (including me) won't be
happy to switch to such an intermediate point at the moment. Perhaps the
best approach would be to focus on packages with unmaintained or
abandoned upstreams. For those packages there is a much more clear
benefit of pooling together distribution patches.

Kind regards,

Hans
