I was just thinking yesterday this is the reason why I like Fedora bugs more
than upstream bugs. The fix gets delivered in a day. Sure after no
regression in the executed 105184 testcases. Contrary to it an upstream fix
gets delivered in half a year.
Oh, I forgot, Fedora no longer delivers the fix in a day but ... even not in
a week. Because I usually create new build during the updates-testing week so
the days start to count again.

One has to give up on backporting new fixes to ever get any delivered.
