policy around 'wontfix' bug tag

Hi all,

This might not be the most useful list, but I'm not subscribed to -devel
and don't want to jump in there without good reason.

When a maintainer tags a bug report with 'wontfix', is there not an
expectation that they will say why?

I was just reading a bug report that seemed valid (if correct; I
couldn't actually test it easily) but was tagged 'wontfix' with no

In that case the bug if anything should have been forwarded upstream,
but tagging 'wontfix' with no reason seems a little rude?
