As I said, when there's a bug report on mga, we start investigating
the problem and go and look at upstream for a bug report there for
*that* particular bug. Then, when we see it fixed we go to the control
versioning system ang create a patch from the commit that fixed *that*
bug according to the upstream report and apply it to the mga package,
what isn't clear about that ?

Again, read with attention what I said before and on this answer.
