Once again, I have no idea what you're talking about.

1. Please read my comment on bug 568183 why it's a duplicate of 191119.

2. When I marked 568183 is a dup of 191119, I also changed the status of 
191119 from 'incomplete' to 'confirmed'.  That will ensure that it gets 
looked at.

3. Bug 191119 has the correct package assigned.  This will ensure that 
the appropriate people sees it.  568183 has no package assigned.

4. Bug 191119 has more subscribers than 568183.  In other words more 
people will see it.

5. When you mark 568183 as a dup of 191119, all people who are notified 
about changes to 568183 will automatically also be notified about 
changes to 191119.

Because of #5 above, in the absolute worst-case scenario, bug 191119 is 
AT LEAST as visible as bug 568183.  Because of 1-4, 191119 is actually 
considerably more visible than 568183.  Therefore, the most visible 
place to comment on this is 191119.
