we have the same kind of problem with KDE. bugzilla is all except easy 
to interface with the rest of the world. I had tried to do some scripts 
that interact between the BTS and bugs.kde.org'zilla ... and I've 
renounced.

Just for the sake of the statistics [1] or [2] will show you that we 
have to deal with 1200+ bugs. let's just say most of them just rot in 
the BTS ...

the maintainer-has-to-forward-the-bugs-to-the-upstream-for-the user is 
valid for packages that are reasonnably small, and when the bug 
tracking system of the upstream is reasonnably scriptable. Projects 
like mozilla and all its childs projects, KDE, X11, ... the task is 
just too big, and seeing the users forwarding bugs when they can would 
be quite a relief.
