Not true at all, unfortunately.  For every major GNUstep upgrade, we
(Debian maintainers) are patching nearly half of the apps in the
archive.  Sometimes it's straightforward, sometimes not.  All I can
tell is it takes time and effort, especially in our case where human
resources are scarce.

That would be quite a project.  The standard/recommended practices for
maintaining Debian packages are evolving constantly, sometimes at a
pace which makes it hard for us to keep up.
