OK. I have no authority with the package so we're both waiting for
Karl to deal.
It's my opinion though that your NMU work is very easy to integrate
because you generate single patches that can be cleanly applied. It
seems like one of the two following ideas would work going forward:
* Give you permission to upload translations as NMUs immediately.
* Move the repository to alioth or something else where you can be
given commit access.
If we don't here from Karl on his thoughts on these issues within a
day or two, I'll ask him in person to read this.
