quoting http://lists.debian.org/debian-qa/2004/06/msg00084.html the
guidelines for a comeback of a MIA maintainer are these:
| The general policy is this: people who retire on their own, are
| put in an emeritus keyring and can come back by mailing the
| keyring maintainer (doing this should take days or maybe some
| weeks); people who don't retire on their are put in a removed
| keyring, and have to go through NM. (Those keyrings are not in the
| debian-keyring package but their are in the source package.) There
| are probably exceptions, though.
I do not know whether you have been declared MIA at all however or
whether only your key was removed.
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
