In that case we can roll a fixed package (e.g. as a scratch build). (If
upstream says "try a current snapshot, it should be fixed", I'll usually
try to find the actual commit and, if I don't find it, ask "can you please
point me to the commit that fixed it so we can backport it?". But for some
packages, just upgrading to the newer snapshot is the better solution.) But
until that happens, there's no reason for the packager to be involved.
