i expect a *package maintain er* has already a account in the upstream
tracker of packages he maintains - nobody says he needs a gazillion
accounts, but usually he has for the packages he maintains

the ordinary user has a few thousand packages installed

answering in a bugreport "file the bugreport upstream" is the best
way after the third time never ever get any bugrpeort from this

does not matter from the viewpoint of a *ordinary user*
nor is he able to know if it is the case

does not matter from the viewpoint of a *ordinary user*
