Sorry to bother you, I know you are working hard...

Just yesterday I need to fill a bug and read this page

This is a fragment:

"Don't file bugs upstream

If you file a bug in Debian, don't send a copy to the upstream
software maintainers yourself, as it is possible that the bug exists
only in Debian. If necessary, the maintainer of the package will
forward the bug upstream."

I know nvidia is a "special case" just to give you this information in
order you could ask the users to open and link the bug upstream as a
"special case"...

Perhaps the depth of love can be calibrated by the number of different
selves that are actively involved in a given relationship.
