Please, this makes no sense anymore. The tech-ctte has not yet reached its
conclusion (at least not via a formal vote), but the three people (out of
seven) who have said anything seem to agree quite clearly with me:

Given that you'll need 4:1 majority in the tech-ctte to overrule me on bugs
against pvm (as I am the pvm package maintainer), and three out of seven (the
other four are still silent) seem to agree that I can let 266762 be wishlist,
could we please stop playing BTS-pingpong and get on with releasing sarge?
