	Of course not!  The maintiner should have also gotten an
email when the bug was filed and should also been checking bugs.debian.org
for which bugs are part of thier package.  Lastly, I should hope that most
maintiners are checking the release-critical bug reports webpage to
see if there is anything they can be fixing.  It shoudn't be anyone's job
to the kick the maintainer in the head to get things fixed.  This
isn't a job, it is fun! :)
