Traditional patching methods require a lot of investigation, looking for the right patch, applying it, compiling, failing, and trying again. The Debian Patch Porting System aims to systematize the security patching process by incorporating the most efficient patching practices and heuristics, and to make it easy to backport patches in Debian packages. The goal of this GSoC would be to design a flexible crawler to extract security patches from across various bug trackers and distributions.
