Actually, upon finding hop this morning he said he wouldn't have been able
to make it yesterday because he didn't have a free moment at work
otherwise he'd have emailed me.

The package was uploaded late by a whole 12 hours.

This was a FOUR DAY OLD bug report with a patch that had already been
written, but could not be extracted until hop made it to work on Monday.
He was busy at work and I was busy with same so I didn't know I'd have to
wait until this morning to upload the package.  A whole 12 hours

Oh no!  You'd better get me expelled from the project for leaking
sensitive Debian secrets!

You just earned yourself a procmail rule.  Have a nice day.
