You submitted #597964 with severity normal. Are you seriously implying
that normal bugs should warrant stable fixes? I am sorry, this is not
the way it works at all. You can't expect the maintainer to do anything
other then a normal upload to sid + the usual migration to testing if
you claim the bug you submitted has a normal severity.
Stable updates are usually security fixes only, thats just the way it
Enabling features that were previously not enabled is usually really out
of scope for stable updates. A backports upload might work, but you
should really talk to the speech-dispatcher maintainer about this. Just
grabbing someone else's package and pushing it to backports without him
consenting feels kind of impolite to me.
