Upstream means that we agree that the problem is a bug in Debian, but
that the bug is also in the upstream code - ie, we have inherited it
Forwarded means that we agree that the problem is a bug in Debian; we
think that the best way to fix it is to engage with upstream (and
perhaps take their fix in due course, or perhaps cherry pick it); and
we have therefore notified upstream via their bug tracker.
These overlap. Normally Forwarded would imply Upstream although I
guess there might be bizarre situations where we would (for example)
ask for upstream help or advice with fixing a bug which manifests only
But neither of them is appropriate if the bug cannot be fixed by any
change in Debian (a package, process, document, or whatever).
