But Laurie does later say that the Openssl team needs to make it easier for people to communicate things like this to it (I would think that includes publishing an email address where someone is likely to look for it that reaches people in a position to fix upstream Openssl), and that it probably isn't possibly due to lack of resources.
The fundamental problem being pointed out here might be with distribution of resources. Debian apparently has the resources to maintain a private fork of Openssl, but not to maintain the trunk, whereas the trunk seems to be the more effective place to apply resources in a case like this.
