depends on the code- in some cases, where upstreams are going to work
with us we do pre-patch and stage content that we can control code for -
this tends to mostly be content outside of the distro.

For the distro itself, we rely on the source drops from upstream - but
we dont really test or need to own too much of the code lifecycle there.
