kernel policy vs bug handling (how to followup #919227 ?)


In an earlier post[1] I mentioned an ACPI LID issue with my laptop, which has been fixed in the current 5.x series[2].

My questions:

1) other than commenting on my own bugreport[3] with this information, should I do anything else, like closing it or adding some special tags? As far as current "testing" branch is concerned, this bug is still present, unless you install a kernel from "experimental"[4] or upstream.

2) maybe I am not using the proper keywords but I can't seem to find information on Debian kernel policy, specifically: when does a new kernel from upstream enter "unstable"? Later on it would move to "testing" and then "stable", this part I know how it works, but I am missing the initial step. I already have a working kernel package so this is just curiosity regarding the process, no begging :)
