So in other words, the request in the subject line of the bug report
"please add xmailtool to overrides/katie database? will actually be done
at some point?

How does that mesh with the "wontfix" tag, or closing the report?  If
you do actually intend to resolve the report using the method suggested
by the submitter, that sounds like an ordinary bug fix to me.  The kind
of report you close when the matter is resolved.

I wouldn't dream of it, hence the proposal in this thread.

Anyway, as it stands, people with the current version of the package
installed will be dealing with Bug #112645, which makes it difficult to
upgrade a box to testing.

The "urgency" field of a package upload is meaningless if a package
can't be processed because of changes that need to happen to the katie
database first.  Is that a deliberate or accidental policy?
