This page doesn't really cover Fedora policy or practice, it covers RHEL
policy and practice, which is not the same thing.

The next revision of Bugzilla will in fact include a link on this page,
directing you to:


for the Fedora policy and practice. That page says in passing:

"The resolution UPSTREAM can be used by maintainers to denote a bug that
they expect to be fixed by upstream development and naturally rolled
back into Fedora as part of the update process. Ideally, a comment
should be added with a link to the upstream bug report."

but that's just what I wrote when updating the page, it's not based on
any official discussion / agreement, so I made it intentionally vague
and (hopefully) non-controversial.
