Re: Miss Manners (Debian Edition): Release Critical Bugs

P.S. If the maintainer of the package in question is reading this

will make it for release! Thanks for your hard work!
You're being rather vague, mentioning neither the package nor the bug
number, so I'm not certain if the maintainer will recognize that he
is meant, even if he reads this list. So, what is the bug number?
Well, that's because I wanted to give the maintainer a chance to fix
stuff before calling him out. And as it turns out, he did, and the new
version of open-vm-tools (the package in question) will be headed into
lenny in 11 days (wait time got extended from 10 to 15 days).
And kudos and thanks to Daniel Baumann for his work on open-vm-tools and
about 150 other packages (wow). Had I looked harder at who the
maintainer was and how many packages he maintained, I probably wouldn't
have even started this thread. Now I feel sheepish about it, and will
go into a corner and hide.
