quickly presenting myself, I am a contributor to the Tails project [1]
and a Debian maintainer of privacy related packages [2].

With my Tails contributor hat on, I've provided severaly patches to
Bugzilla, such as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=971347
and bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=669238.

However, I must say that I am a bit surprised about the way these bug
reports are handled. As you can see, the proposed patches would solve
the issues and we'd be glad to improve them further. However there does
not seem to be a common strategy.

What's would you advise here? How do we really get these - as well as
user security - taken into account and patches merged?

Cheers!
