Plus:
 - check other open bugs
 - check whether there's a new upstream release

Else it would be a test update just for this fix, and possibly another one
right after that because the maintainer awakes and dislikes the small
fix-update that doesn't address other issues. It could even be that
additional problems are not covered in bugzilla. I wouldn't want to work
on this bug without talking to the package maintainer first.

And the maintainer already works with the next upstream release series [in
rawhide]. It would not be the first time that those packages are pushed to
the other branches. It has been done before with Audacious, even with
changes in the plugin ABI+API.
