Ubuntu has its own heavily patched bzr version.
There does not seems to be interest in releasing their patches as official 2.7.1
Most of the Ubuntu patches don't seem like anything worth diverging from upstream for, apart from one. Most of the value would be in just pulling up to the latest code since the release anyway, and it's probably cleaner and futureproofer to get that from the upstream VCS than Ubuntu's tarball.
See bug 240242.
@Maintainer, is comment 1 "Closed -> Not Accepted" or something else, eg: "will provide patch for a change in upstream" ?
The patch here refers to 2.7.0 when the port is at 3.0.1.
It should be either updated, or closed.

I'd phrase it as "the important functional parts of this will come in via another route in bug 240242". So, I guess "not accepted" for the _letter_ of this change, but "done another way" for the spirit?

Thank you for the feedback.
Since the request is specifically for an upstream change directly to another source, without *specific* requests for particular features/changes/functions, 'not accepted' is more obvious/appropriate.
Bug 240242 remains in See Also: for reference and breadcrumb purposes.
