That still seems really silly IMHO.

That's fine. But if they are upstream bugs whoever is the maintainer of
the package for RedHat should be reporting them to us. Not just letting
them sit around in their issue tracker.

Ultimately, someone at RedHat who builds the package should have a
"relationship" with us. As far as I know Joe Orton is responsible for
the package and he's a committer here. So I'd like to think he does
that stuff for us.
