I am fedora maintainer of libass package and I take as upstream for it
the one at sf.net [1]. I was asked in our bugzilla [2] to include your
patch [3] against it. But it is fedora policy to "work upstream" which
means if we include a patch in our package we should reference upstream
bz#, which does not seem to exist in this case. I hoped you, as
co-authors of the patch, would enlighten me in this matter why vlc carry
its own set of patches against libass instead pushing them directly
upstream (and using system copy libass instead of their own).
