I comprehend very well what I'm proposing ( given I've been on the same 
side of the fence that reporters are for the last 5 years or more ) but 
do you comprehend where we are heading?

You do know that atleast one desktop is going for supporting app bundles 
right so we need to test that functionality downstream with us as well 
as reporting that to relevant upstream.

So I think that you need to start thinking and speculating and asking 
yourself where will we be in 5 - 10 years time yes there are people that 
are responsive in bugzilla and do look at it from time to time but quite 
frankly the majority ignores it.

To give you an example I added a simple requirement patch for ca 50 
component ( making the component FPG compliant  ) in July as an stage 1 
for migration of relevant cron jobs ( which are not the ones on that 
list ) to native systemd timer units( stage 2 being the actual migration 
for the rest of the components ) and still after all the time that has 
passed we got 24 open bugs with those patches just hanging there
