absolute newcomer here, so excuse if asking stupid thing.

I recently was working on making net-im/telegram-desktop
building without extra patches on FreeBSD and came to
its dependency net-im/tg_owt, started to work on upstreaming
patches and realized that the component webrtc is pulled
out of chromium project and that www/chromium has a similar
patches inside. Looking at this HUGE patches I asked myself
why aren't we upstreaming FreeBSD support to Google?

Was that tried? Did that fail? What was their answer? Who
tried that?
