What policy with respect to patches does the team intend to use?

    1. Will you accept patches from both the mailing list and bugzilla?
    2. Will you give preferential treatment to patches coming in from 
	one source or the other?
    3. What about patches for native openssh; should they go to bugzilla
	or the mailing list?
    4. Is this retroactive; that is, must we go back and post all the
	patches we've previously posted to the mailing list if they
	haven't yet been incorporated?
