I'm packaging buildbot for Debian. You may add a cherry-picked patch
as a separate file to debian/patches if you are using DebSrc 3.0
(quilt) format. You may look on my sources for example [1,2] or
download the package sources from Debian itself. Once the changes get
into upstream release you'll be able to remove that patch.

I'd like to look on your PPA too, maybe there some other things to
consider and improve my own packages. Currently I'm missing upstart
init scripts to get new buildbot into official Ubuntu too.
