[OOTB-hive] Call for contribution: Let's build a comprehensive module of bug patches!

I really appreciate a bugfix extension, but this script "import" things
raises a few worries here.

I fully agree that the "import tag" is terrible due to it's "IDE
breaking nature". However I consider this one of the few things which
really has to be addressed by Alfresco. I for one would never build any
code relying on this fix applied as a "community patch".

I may have missed it, but are there any policies around the bugfix effort?

Will all things "carried around" be applied no matter what?

I mean pretty much every extension has issues, and I expect this one to
be no exception. If this spirals out of control, one may be better off
not applying it at all.
