I'm saying that the same guy who provided the control patch
for #440913 is also working on the package, he is working on patches
for already existing lintian warning (like problems with copyright,
changelog, updating policy).
After that, I do hope Andre (which is the primary maintainer
for this package) manifest his intention to apply the patches,
otherwise, since it is under Debian-BR-Team umbrella, I will apply
the patches and upload the package.

I also agree that it's pointless to waste much time on the
severity with the patch available and the upload planned, but I
will not change the priority yet again (like you just did). :-)
