patches question

After the last reply to my netcat-openbsd, I am
uncertain about the kind of patches which can
be included by policy.

For firefox, I would start to include what fixes
buildprocess for us and fixes bugs (including
features) upstream has not bothered to close yet
or in general.

That is what the netcat-openbsd-* files of debian
are about I assume (but I have not asked debian

For firefox, bundled libraries and applications
can be patched away (system graphite+harfbuzz),
more I can not figure out in this state of package.
Gentoo has 37 patches for the 45.x of firefox,
some which are useless to us, some which can be
useful completely or just in parts.
Some are even solved through the way we can
build software.

Sometimes I don't want to wait up on upstream.
Maybe some fixes by (example name) Gentoo have
not been pushed back to mozilla, but if it
fixes builds and features I see no reason why
not to use it.

In the case of firefox I'm willing to communicate
with mozilla, as with all software, but I'd do this
after inclusion of patches so we can drop patches
once there has been a merge or a bug has been resolved.
