It is not a requirement that patches be submitted - only that source code be 
made available. Patches are normally submitted because it is more convenient 
for the developer if the change is in the canonical version. If the developer 
does not see the value of having their patch in the canonical tree, they will 
not (and are not required to) submit it.
