Often the answer is yes. It will not come out until the next point
release. In this case 8.3. Those come out every six months.
Depending on the bug, it's possible that it will come out in the .1
release. In this case 8.2.1. Those come out every three months.
If there is a new feature (blah can now use json for input) then it
usually waits until the point (8.3) release. This gives it more
If it is a something minor update, then it can (but doesn't have to)
come out in the sub-point (8.2.1) release.
Sometimes if you ask on the bug when it is coming out, the developers
will respond. But not always. They often don't want to commit to a
certain release if it's possible it will not go in that release. So
they might not reply. But sometimes they do.

I realize this is somewhat off-topic, but it is also somewhat related to
EPEL, and I don't know where else to ask as I'm not a RHEL customer, but

I have an open bug against a package that's in RHEL8. The bug is in ON_QA
state. It is not a security bug. Does this mean the package update will
not be released until the next RHEL8 point release (8.3?).
(The reason this is EPEL related: I need this bug fix in order to build a
package that has been requested in EPEL8.)
