In fact I wish people would do it more often. Being able to tell bug reporters “please check what happens with the X stack in experimental” (which had more or less latest upstream release candidates or releases), and closing with those versions; or forwarding upstream if bugs are still there, is something I find very interesting indeed. And last I checked, upstreams were happy not to receive a massive flow of bug reports for already-fixed bugs, so that they could concentrate on current issues. Mraw, KiBi.
