1. Generic attitude of many maintainers is that either they go to
the correct place ( upstream ) or they get their bugzilla ignored.
Note that this is going to annoy a LOT of upstreams. Several of mine have
requested that bugs in their code be reported to them but that bugs specific to
Fedora (packaging bugs, ...) not be forwarded to them.
Note also that bugzilla.redhat.com
is the upstream for several packages
in Fedora so this will not make us move away from it.
2. More often than not downstream maintainer as in packager does not
Jóhann, can you supply the dataset that you used to deduce that "More often
know the code at all so filling the bug downstream makes no sense.
This is the real problem and you should fix it instead of implementing
hacky workarounds like this proposal.
