* send an email to the bug report clearly stating that you will NMU
this, and attach the debdiff (nmudiff)
State that you will upload directly (without delay) after 7 days
according to https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/pkgs.html#nmu
* wait and hope
* upload *now* to DELAY/9
* write to the bug report that according to (above link), after 7 days
of no activity a 0-delay is fine, and even if there is activity
a delay/2 is fine - that gives in sum at max a delay/9
That way we can do that now and forget about it ;-)
If you need the actual upload done, please prepare the package and send
me either a dget-able .dsc source, or the package.
