A 6 year old bug with a fix still not merged into release

Asked by K on 2020-06-14

Hi! I was wondering how this is possible. A 6 year old bug that's confirmed and with a confirmed fix is still at "Confirmed" stage without being merged into release. What needs to be done by whom for this to be fixed (and maybe not happen in the future?!)?

Ubuntu is copying that software from Debian. Therefore the right addressee for such request is Debian.

Maybe one of the bugs
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=912576
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=931474
is already covering that problem.
