Bug #647552 - Where to start

Hi all,

I'm looking for a bit of advice on where to start with resolving my first Debian bug [1]. Right now, I'm wondering how I can get a version-controlled copy of the source code for gcc 4.6/4.7 that was used to build these packages. Ideally, I'd like to use SCM tools to generate diffs, or back out changes if they are just terrible.

If I come up with a patch, where do I send it? It would apply against gcc 4.6 and 4.7 for sure, but it'd probably be needed upstream too. Am I responsible for getting it upstream or is a maintainer?

Finally, assuming the patch is accepted by the Debian maintainers/developers, what are the next steps to getting it turned into a package that is distributed?
