After bit of discussion there is a compelling reason to move entirely
away from Red Hat bugzilla as well as away from hosting our own and
probably is the correct way forward for us.
1. Generic attitude of many maintainers is that either they go to the
correct place ( upstream ) or they get their bugzilla ignored.
citation needed. There are surely components where this is the case,
but many others where it's not.
Personally, I help/answer bugzilla bugs, when/if they become clearly a
upstream issue I ask the reporter if they would like to file it
upstream or would like me to.
2. More often than not downstream maintainer as in packager does not
know the code at all so filling the bug downstream makes no sense.
It does in many cases.
* It's a packaging bug.
* It's a request for a version update or something like that.
* It's something related to interaction between packages.
* It's something that is already fixed upstream and the Fedora package
simply needs to add the patch.
