you seem to be deliberately misunderstanding me.
I’m not a maintainer of the Debian Linux kernel. I exhibit
a few of the things I mentioned, such as, not being know‐
ledgeable enough about the stuff. In this instance, I’m the
user / bug reporter.
Not “all DDs must forward bugs about *all* packages to *all*
upstreams”, but “package maintainers must forward bugs about
*their* packages (and perhaps others, if interested and capable)
to those upstreams”.
I try to do so for my packages and a couple others (I’d even
be more involved in klibc if upstream and maks weren’t such
a wall of silence).
