	Is there a time limit on this sort of thing? As an example there is a bug we opened 2 years ago that still has not been fixed. Someone posted a patch to the laundpad 4 months ago that addresses the issue but hasn't submitted a review. How long do we wait before its ok to submit the patch so we can have the fix? Is there some way we can note where the original code came from so as not to be viewed as stealing credit?

	I ask now because I planned on posted a review with tests in next week or so because we really need the fix (https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/856764).
