With all the facts so nicely laid out, it definitely is worth a blog entry. 
I would paint it as "a day in the life of community-driven QA" and focus on 
the whole story. With a short sentence on how the patch we ignored caused 
some problems in that other distro with a link to the ubuntu leak story.

That way makes sure it will get connected and indexed in the right context 
but readers will see that this is really just sth worth mentioning, not 
worth discussing.

I can write it on my blog (http://jan.wildeboer.net) as google seemingly 
likes my blog and puts it quite high in its ranking.

Correction: Jesse in fact works for Intel. Apologies for the mistake.
Thanks to Matthew Garrett for the correction.
