But why are "*we* going to need to replace it"? Is the issue that urgent
so there is not even 24 or 72 hours to talk to upstream to make them
aware of the issue first? Then maybe upstream can fix it quickly once
and for all and for all distributions? Or are we not allowed to talk
about this in public bug trackers?
No, the issue is not that urgent. We (Fedora) need to take action to
remedy this. This could be in the form of writing a patch and submitting
it upstream for review, or simply pointing to upstream and having them
resolve it, then taking in the same changes in Fedora.
Ultimately, upstream is responsible for this problem, but by helping
make them aware of it (and possibly fixing it for them), we're being
good community participants.
I would love to have all of these cases resolved by F8, but
realistically, I'm not going to require it until F9.
