Ideally; we're a bit far away from that now, though. The top item on
my prority list is fixing the bugs, not polishing the package for a
release in the intermediate state it is in right now.

It's not several releases behind. The upstream version *IS* the Debian
version. Upstream releases when it uploads a new version to Debian.

If you have patches to fix the outstanding issues with the package, by
all means submit them, but NMUing the codebase as it stands now will
produce packages which are of worse quality than those currently
So no, you shouldn't NMU.
Certainly the game is rigged. Don't let that stop you. If you don't
bet, you can't win.
