As a package maintainer, what would you like me to do in situations
where I need the reporter to talk to upstream?  Should I just pat you
on the head and promise to fix it, even though I can't?  If I can't
even reproduce the problem with my hardware, or its a feature request
that needs to be discussed as part of an upstream development what
exactly are the better choices than encouraging you to take your case
to upstream?
