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. -- Darryl L.
