Are you pushing these downstream to the Fedora group? And are you on the 
package CC list for the Fedora Bugzilla?

This hit the SpamAssassin Developer list yesterday:

Subject: SA Devel for Fedora Core

Any spamassassin developers interested in being automatically added to all
new spamassassin bugs that are reported for Fedora Core at
bugzilla.redhat.com?  Developers from other upstream projects like gaim
have become involved with FC in this way.  It has proven to be a win for
both the upstream and downstream projects, as the developers often KNOW the
majority of problems instantly, alert us to existing patches for the
package, or even simply close stupid user reports.  Otherwise they have the
option of removing themselves from the CC if they simply are not
interested. [1]

Any volunteers, developers or even power-users, can help as liasons to the
Fedora Project.  Your software is important to our distribution, so
fostering communication with upstream development and making sure patches
go both ways is important.

This is a problem tracker for spamassassin 3.0's snapshots in FC rawhide
that should be solved before the release of FC3.  FC3 development will
expose spamassassin 3.0 snapshots and later pre-releases to thousands of
additional testers, with the goal of improving the quality of both SA 3.0
and FC3.

Three upstream gaim developers are automatically added to all FC gaim bugs.
As the result of the gaim partnership, several bugs were quickly killed in
upstream CVS, and the FC2 package has been polished, exposing CVS fixes to
wide user testing before the next upstream release.  (This has even been
instrumental in preventing one regression from reaching gaim-0.78, after
Gentoo stole a Fedora CVS backport and they noticed an extremely subtle
breakage.)  As the result of this successful partnership, there are current
ZERO open FC gaim bugs.
