It's not uncommon for organizations to use issue trackers to track
tasks... really anything that gets opened, has a life cycle, and
eventually gets resolved can be tracked. I don't think it's silly of
RedHat to use this technique. We do internally at CollabNet all the
time; and the Subversion project has this in its public issue tracker
at times too.

Yeah. It might or might not be Joe, but I think we can trust that
_someone_ at RedHat will pass native problems upstream.
