OK, so I should have said 'Ubuntu developer' (member of core dev or
MOTU) instead of 'developer'. Lots of fixes are being worked on by
upstreams or other non-Ubuntu developers all the time, but we don't mark
a bug as In Progress unless someone is working on a fix in Ubuntu, or at
least in a remote bugtracker to which we have set an upstream task.
We would encourage anyone who is a developer to join MOTU and later
core-dev so you can upload fixes directly. If you submit useful patches
you would also very easily qualify for ubuntu-qa.
