I'm not sure what all your referencing:
* Who is we?
* What is our distro?
* Who is the vendor?
* Who is the you that you're letting know?

Fedora packagers generally add a comment to their spec file which describes
a patch.  So if they are adding a patch from upstream to backport a feature
it might be like this:

# Patch from upstream to add comment capability
# https://vcs.upstream.org/project/12345/file.php
Source0: zikula-comment.patch

I don't think that's quite what you're asking but maybe it'll get us closer
to understanding each other :-)
