I have question, how you handle bugs where fix already available in
upstream, but you don't want to backport that fix yet. What you do
with bug in our trash-box (bugzilla.redhat.com)?
Why don't you want to backport it?
Probably you use whiteboard to indicate where it was fixed, close
and write into comment that it will be fixed in next upstream release
CLOSED->UPSTREAM or CLOSED->NEXTRELEASE both exist, but honestly I
would probably put the bug in DEFERRED if you plan to fix it but can't
yet for some reason. A comment describing the timeline for when the
fix will hit Fedora is probably sufficient. The key for any of these
states is to remember to actually do the fix.
