I would have too look at my old mail folders to see when I actually
applied, but its a long time ago. I actually fear that by the time
being I hear anything from the new-maintainer team I won´t be able to
remember my passphrase.
Getting an answere from the new maintainer team seems impossible and I
thing thats something that must be worked on. With the current settup
people only drift away from Debian while no new maintainers are
accepted and less and less developement is actually done.
May the Source be with you.
