What's the recourse for when a jira is closed, but not fixed... Do I have to just create a duplicate? I have one that's a huge pain, that simply requires a single method to be changed from private to protected... It was closed because of lack of time...
Bugs marked as closed with a resolution of deferred are candidates for fixing in a future release.The list gets looked at during the next release.
You need not create a duplicate, instead I would recommend getting the community to vote on the bug. The more votes the bug gets, the higher the likelihood that it will be prioritized.

I really dislike the use of "closed" for this, because issues can't be discussed anymore. I've had several issued closed as deferred, and have sadly never had any make it back out of that graveyard.
