But I don't think it's as simple as telling the reporter "try the

We should most certainly not be recommending or using Factory to users
as a part of resolving a bug.

No, but if it's fixed in factory, then the question becomes about
backporting the fix and/or properly identifying that it has been fixed in

It's not a productive use of a developer's time to fix something that's
already been fixed. :)
