Short of people.a.o/~luser/my-patch.tgz, I'm fairly certain that
can't happen with an incubating podling.  Everything under the space
/dist/ must exist under a PMC.  And if AOOo ever does on a broad
security patch distribution, inflicting that traffic on people.a.o,
infra will be taking names and kicking asses.

As chair, you should have been brought into this loop, but with the
change from Noel I can see how this oversight happened.  Sorry about
that.  It's probably another example why the current infrastructure
schema simply isn't plausible.
