What I have found works best is when upstream subscribe to the Debian package tracking system (kmymoney2, kile, ...) and then forward PTS email into their upstream -dev mailing list. http://bugs.debian.org/523477 is a great example. Debian users get a reasonable response turn around and bug visibility is apparent to everyone at the right time. Of course getting upstream to subscribe to a number of sources is always a challenge, but presumably they are happy with subscribing to high s/n traffic about their package. I know maduck is doing some work to try and sync bug reports/ patches across distributions. Mark
