don't worry to much about testing removal, its not the end of the world
-- it will also have plenty time to reenter afterwards.

Or, if you say the NMU from with the patch from Mike (see BTS) is OK, I
can accelerate it so that the upload enters todays.

Or, provide me with a dsc file (e.g via mentors) and I'll check &
sponsor it...

... Because we can tackle the repository thing later, too. It is not a
show stopper if it is out-of-date for a while and certainly can wait
until we settle the bureaucracy

I do not have a preference where the repository is; collab-maint has
the charme of well -- collaborative maintainance, but it would be also
fine to have it under the team repository. Maybe your team has a
preference here? For sure, I also can offer to push your changes to
collab-maint as a interim solution.

As said, either way is completly fine. Just check with your team and
pick :)

If you go for collab-maint, you need an DD to advocate you for access
rights, as described here [1]. (Best ist to check with some DD you
worked with in the past if she/he would be ok with advocating you)
