Actually I think one of the most difficult (as in strange) package I
encoutered was python-sip4. I did most of the strange work but I got stuck
at install-arch-3.% magic which ScottK solved which was total out-of-box
thinking: he moved it above install-arch-% -_-
I also remember when I was very proud of commiting the patch to fix Qt 4.5
rendering errors which we had back then but it was mostly done but someone
else and I had only to adjust the lines so this doesn't count.
About your second question:
Most likely I would accept it, depending on time span available. I would of
course testbuild then check if the critical bugs are actually getting fixed
and then test the new features if any and if they outweight the
possibilities for small regressions, I would accept it.
