While I don't think we can really solve this problem in the short term,
it would be generally helpful if the launchpad bug describing and
discussing the change would point to at least attempts to forward it
upstream. This might be a bugtracker, a mailing list or an email with
As for the long to mid-term solution of the problem documenting how
upstream prefers contributions/patches, perhaps launchpad could provide
metadata about that in the project description and provide a link to
that on the bug pages?
