I have asked for the status; I have been told nothing.  I'm not making
any insistence about when the work is done or on what schedule; I have
been extremely annoyed that the maintainer has time for everything
else but no time to write a two-line answer to a simple question.

I'm doing lots of work of my own towards Debian release, but then,
when my work is stymied because other developers can't even write two
lines and say "this is the status..." something bad is happening.
