Ok plain English time :-P
When we Zikula need to add a vendor patch for a vendor library we distribute
with Zikula, we Zikula need to let you know what the vendor patch is so your
packagers know what to patch.  How do we let you know what the correct patch
is officially.  Vendor patch means a patch committed to their VCS but not
yet released in an official version.

e.g. Zikula uses Smarty.  Smarty fixes something important to us, but hasnt
yet released a version that includes that fix.  So we checkout revision X
from their source control or file y from revision X and patch the version of
Smarty we distribute.  How do we let you know if we have in fact needed to
do this.

This particular example is fictitious but the way, but could very well
