I generally care about the health of my packages and about meeting
release goals, so yes.
While this particular file indeed is third-party contributed (not
coded by upstream or resulting from my packaging work either), it is
nonetheless included by upstream in the tarball, so I'm trying my best
to clean it up.
FWIW, I had already contact the contributor of this script, when that
bug initially appeared, offering him an opportunity to fix the issue
himself, but he never responded.
I suppose it would be nice if either Russell or Manoj could check that
the fix doesn't break the script when operating under SELinux, before
this gets uploaded, but this is not mandatory.
