Considering I've been involved with infrastructure since at least
2004. I think I classify as one of the long term infrastructure guys
and I do not agree with you. There is possibly some cases where it's
better to just report upstream.
If we want the bugs to be fixed it's best to directly file them upstream
How would we document and make sure that the message got out.
The how to debug and how to test process I started many years ago in QA.
There are many more times that the bug only belongs in fedora. I
strongly believe fedora developers should be the gateway and the
people with the relationship to upstream.
Well I thought our goal was to have as many upstreams contributing to
Fedora not as many people acting as liasons between upstream and Fedora?
It is right to require our users to possible have to create multiple
bug reporting accounts in multiple upstreams? I personally do not
That argument goes both ways you can just as well say should upstream
have gazillion downstream distribution bugzilla accounts?
There are two ways this can be solved which works both in favour of
upstream and reporters one is to have bugzilla instance communicate
between themselves and that concept that breaks immediately since there
are various different bugzilla instance in usage as there are upstreams
and the other approach to have single large bugzilla instance that all
major distribution maintain and use together with specific distribution
component ( which infra claims not having resources to do anyway ).
