//Upsteam meaning RHEL has fixed it.//

The goal of CentOS is to rebuild the Source Code released by Red Hat
for RHEL while changing only vendor branding and artwork, so changes
like this are rolled into CentOS when Red Hat rolls them into the source
code for RHEL. In other words, when the updated source package from RHEL will be pushed by RH to, CentOS will build and release it.

Upstream has said that this fix may not appear any time soon - does that mean I should rebuild the package by myself and forget about this bugzilla?

CentOS doesn't have its own packages like you said - you strip RedHat's branding and you're done. What's the point of your bugzilla then? Reporting bugs in your branding?

- We also track upstream bugs, meaning CentOS users post them here, and we (or they) post them upstream if it is present there as well.
- Some bugs reported here are also allready posted upstream, and then cross-referenced
- There indeed are bugs which are unique to CentOS
- There are branding bugs
Still wolfys argument is valid - we rebuilt RHEL bug by bug and feature by feature. If you are willing to rebuilt the package in question, you can also reach out to the CentOS-Devel mailing list - CentOS-extras might become a place for your package to also be consumed by others.
