Looking at the critical fix I need I might be able to distil that into a
single patchfile that could be used in the main exim package until exim
decides to do a release again. ;)

Thanks for the hint and to Greg for his hint on the other list will take
a look at both bash for hints on how to manage patch series and also
consider creating an exim-fixes (or something similar) wip package.
shells/bash is an example of a package with a somewhat similar patch
policy. Hopefully it's similar enough that it can be done.
I do sympathise with the release only strategy. I suspect I'd want to do
the same given the wip release valve for awkward cases.
That might be a good way to make the main package usable for everyone. I
will also work on the wip version to track the fixes branch somehow even
if its just a direct fetch from github.
