The bug page gives you the status. It was assigned (to Karanbir), and he
ack'ed it. If it was fixed, it would be resolved. It shouldn't be that hard to
apply the fix manually and your legal department is too rigid if they are that
picky about a fix to "free" software. I can see if they were paying contract
support on it.

If Karanbir thinks it merits an upstream bug report, I'm almost sure he might
do that, if the original bug poster doesn't. It "might" be fixed by the time
5.3 comes out, but do you want to wait?

You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
