Well, we really don't need more than that. Distributed packages aren't
supposed to be a forked version of the original one. We write patches to
fix problems. Some of the written patches introduce minor features (in
which case, it should be very easy to understand by simply looking at
the patch). But, that's all… If you want more than that (detailed
descriptions of each patch), it's not going to happen because it's a lot
of work. Besides, we try to send to our upstreams each written patch…
So, in an ideal world, those patches are there only for a limited amount
of time.

Regards,
