How do we escalate a bug report?

There is a bug (#94294) that has been ignored by the development community for way too long. It appeared in v8, a "fix" was introduced in 8.0.13 (not a great fix, but worked), which itself disappeared in 8.0.14, without an alternate fix. The bug affects users of Workbench with MySQL 5.7 or any MariaDB. The "feature" introduced in v8, which originated the bug, is of dubious value, but that is not the topic here.

The bug has been closed! And, prior to that, its severity was lowered. The bug is filed against MacOS, but it really affects all versions of Workbench.

We are stuck in version 8.0.13 of Workbench when it has seen significant improvements up to 8.0.18 (the last one I have checked).

Nobody seems to be listening to comments in that bug report, there are plenty of people requesting that the bug be reopened. It impacts backups of MySQL 5.7 or MariaDB.

So, back to the subject, how do we escalate so someone reads the bug report and hopefully installs again the fix of 8.0.13, perhaps done properly as outlined in the same bug report?
