There's a difference between maintenance and development. The package 
should be "maintained" in trunk if included in trunk. That means that 
fixes that are required to keep it working are applied to it regardless 
of the upstream situation.

The package should be "developed" separately though. That means I'll be 
adding new features and merge other changes in its own repository. When 
a new version is good and ready it can be merged into the trunk as 

Makes sense?
