Since this has turned into general pony request to the ABRT I shall 
throw in one for the reporters

On behalf of all reporters that have never received a response from a 
maintainer on a component they have reported against I not only ask the 
ABRT maintainers to block any reports against those component that a 
maintainer has not responded but I also request that those components 
get removed from bugzilla.redhat.com.

This confusion has been going on for enough of release cycles already 
and I think it's time for FPC to step in and clarify what are the 
maintainers/packagers responsibility towards the Fedora community and 
it's user base to avoid any further rifts between QA members and 

Either reporters report directly upstream always or to our own bug 
tracking system which one is it?
