You're supposed to be the reporter of or CCed on the upstream bug, then
you'll get notified of the fix and can reopen our bug asking for a backport
of the fix if it's really that important (but keep in mind that Fedora
packages often get upgraded to a bugfix release anyway, for example our KDE
gets upgraded to a bugfix release about once a month).

As maintainers, we will also try to CC ourselves on those upstream bugs to
track their status, but utilimately it's the reporter who cares the most
about seeing his/her bug fixed.
