Hi folks,

some while ago I've already talked a bit about the OSS-QM project
and it's source code repositories, which include upstreams together
with downstream's (distros, etc) changes.

Here's a paper describing it more in datail, from automated upstream
imports down to also importing downstream/distro changes automatically.

The latter works quite well for recent Debian packages (at least
when following their own policies ;-o), as they tell quite exactly
which patches have to be applied (and their order). For Gentoo it's
more complicated, as I dont know a way to exact that information yet.
