They don't track every piece of software they include in the distro, so if
a user doesn't let them know that a new version is available, they just
don't notice. By plugging it into their tracker, it gets into the queue of
things to do.

Fedora devel is the natural "product" to log this against, as it's the
bleeding edge where the avant-garde test out the latest and greatest before
the more conservative enterprise products adopt stuff.

Consumers who buy the packaged distro expect to log any problems with it,
including all repackaged 3rd party packages, with the distro vendor. Not
all packages have the kind of upstream support that Subversion has, and
some actively avoid maintaining old versions, leaving that to the distro
vendor. (One such package was dropped from the RH list with Fedora Core 2
for just that reason.)

The fact that no upstream bugs have made it into RH's tracker suggests that
Subversion users are more savvy of the upstream source (ie. you) than users
of most packages.
