Bug#908155: Coordination with upstream developers not universally applied
"3.1.4. Coordination with upstream developers" says
"You have to forward these bug reports to the upstream developers so that they
can be fixed in a future upstream release."
That's not the current/best practice for a number of packages, either because
of the sheer volume of bug reports/size of the package or because some of the
bugs are very specific to the reporters setup and having the Debian maintainer
as a middle person forwarding information back and forth would be useless
(e.g. for the Linux kernel where a lot of bug reports are hardware-specific).
The current formulation will cause false expections for end users.
Maybe alternatively make this
"You can either forward these bug reports to the upstream developers yourself
or ask the reporter to report them upstream, so that they can be fixed in a
future upstream release."
