Yes, there's the way to do it - we always have tracker bug for most important 
issues we have found! And not only for new releases like Fedora 12, but for 
even for new versions in older releases (like current Qt 4.5.1 tracker [1] 
which blocks this release nearly about one month). If you think your bug is so 
important and it's blocker, talk to us, we add it to our tracker and then we 
are discussing progress on every KDE SIG meeting - you can join, you're 
welcome! If you join us, you can drive Fedora/KDE development even as users 
and only users... These important blocking bugs are never closed without 
working solution.
