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.
