(a) Don't expect all maintainers to notice announcements on -devel.
Announcements belong on -devel-announce, or, in a case like this,
bug reports and/or emails to the relevant developers.
(b) devscripts hasn't used ncftp since version 2.0.0, 7 Jan 1999
(according to the changelog). That's a *long* time ago. It's
used ftp since then, so has correctly depended upon netstd.
