Right, people forked & fixed, but the fix cannot be contributed back to the D community. Other users are still getting the original buggy version from dub, and don't have an easy way to find new patches. So the main blocker is to get the write permission (of the unmaintained packages) of the dub system, this will solve lots of these problems. Or we should setup a new policy that any new dub packages should give write permission to dlang-community by default.
