Or packagers/package-maintainers within a community project spend an
awful lot of time forwarding issues and RFEs from many users, only to
find out that when an upstream developer responds, the original
reporter doesn't answer anymore or has lost interest.

Ultimately, in a community packaging project, small teams (with possibly
redundant structures) of users, developers and packagers pick software
of their interest and maintain packages painstakingly and with close
contact to upstream projects.
