I doubt it's worth the effort to get an exception. If it can't be put
into Hardy, I imagine it would be possible to release the package
later as a bug fix. Plus, as I mention in the bug report, one can
compile from source.

Does not look like it:

Can you recommend any links which give a birds-eye view of how bugs
get fixed? I see a lot of process pages, but they are very
detailed. I imagine it's something like this:
- user discovers bug in package foo
- user reports bug on launchpad
- launpad notifies Ubuntu package maintainers
- Ubuntu package maintainers notify Debian package maintainers
- Debian package maintainers notify developers
- developers fix bug, push out new release, and notify Debian package
- Debian package maintainers create new Debian package and notify
Ubuntu package maintainers
- Ubuntu package maintainers create new Ubuntu package and update launchpad
- user is notified by launchpad, runs apt-get upgrade, and gets fixed package
- everyone celebrates with a beer or two. :)
How close am I to how things really work?
Thanks in advance.
