Speaking as a semi-frequent reporter of Fedora KDE bugs, I can say
that the process works pretty well for me. Of course, I'm probably
somewhat more engaged in the process than average (e.g., I maintain a
few packages myself, and I've had an account at bugs.kde.org for
years). I do occasionally wish that I didn't have to do the upstream
report myself, but I can see the reasons for it.
