Hi Daniel,

The bug report is currently set to "Fix Committed". This suggests that a
fix is available somewhere, but is not yet in any Ubuntu release (I
don't know if that is actually the case, but perhaps you know). The bug
should first be fixed in the current development release (Jaunty) before
being considered for a SRU in any other release. Once this is confirmed
fixed in Jaunty, you should subscribe the "ubuntu-sru" team, where
someone will have a look at it and decide whether the bug is SRU worthy.
In the meantime, you could have a look at the SRU procedures [1] and
start preparing some of the information required for SRU.
