This is what I posted yesterday. The package maintainer should act as
the face for their package(s) to the user. If the maintainer is not the
upstream, then part of their job as maintainer should be to relay those
bugs to the upstream, opening the bugs there, and then ensuring any
patches or updates are moved into Fedora as soon as they're available.
