no i prefer rpm5 modernized it's contribution system, submitting patches 
to mailing list is so 90s.

it should have github/gitlab-like system where patch can be submitted as 
Pull-Request/Merge-Request and appropriate discussion be in that 
specific thread.

also pld has dozen of patches collected from the internet which can't be 
submitted by pld dudes because they have not enough knowledge to 
validate the patch reasoning and provide test cases. the patches just 
work for us. why they never landed in rpm5 repo, you already know.

also, proyvind did not write patches for pld, pld just took his patches 
what he had in rpm5 submit queue.
