I'm happily upstream and maintainer for three packages, libnjb, libmtp and
Being part of Fedora has increased quality of all three projects, perhaps
not much but to some extent. The package review process brings up
many issues, and I have the privilege to avoid patching and sending
patches upstream, instead I just FixIt(TM) and release a new version.
When releasing upstream, the fact that the tarball also survives the build
server environment is a good acceptance test that ensures release quality.
Being both upstream and contributor is quite unproblematic, always was.
And it's not much work at all, once you get into it.
