I should had emphasize the main point I was trying to make: the people 
responsible of making things work in the respective distros would have 
to actually do something with the bug reports (or with whichever 
partial information provided in whichever form) in order for the 
distros to have their respective packages successfully working for 

Generally speaking, in some cases there might be valid reasons for not 
acting on the (sometimes partial, sometimes inaccurate, sometimes 
confusing, sometimes irrelevant) information provided to package 
maintainers, but that's beyond the point I was trying to make - albeit, 
I admit I was not particularly clear in my writing.

Since the original issue presented (thanks to Poma) in this email 
thread seems resolved regarding The Syslinux Project (except for the 
divergence in the Syslinux git repos, but that's another issue now), 
all that remains here is to hope that the respective distros will 
actually apply the necessary steps to solve it.
