This is not, by the way, my experience at all. "UpStream" has been very
serious about handling all clear bugs I've reported.

This is even true with trivially-fixed packaging bugs. You might not get an
immediate errata released, but the problem will eventually get fixed.

The proper place to report these things *is* upstream, even if you're not a
direct customer.
