"If it has not been fixed please do not reopen the bug in Debian BTS"
Please explain your interpretation of the above quote then. When bugs are
closed without any testing or review and such a message is given, what
conclusion can possibly be drawn other than that the Debian maintainer does
not want any bug reports in the Debian BTS, and that such reports will not be
Testing this bug takes less time than it takes to enter a message about the
issue. The fact that bug reports are closed whole-sale with such messages
shows that the maintainer does not want to deal with any bugs and wants them
just reported upstream.
As I said before I don't have the time to deal with upstream on this. If the
package maintainer does not want to deal with them and no-one else wants to
track them, then they will just remain as bugs in KDE.
