Because Branden is not the only one doing that, and my point is much more
deeper. If it is (anywhere) agreed to have a 4-day idle limit for uncritical
updates the debian project is surely not for me anymore. 

So I'm interested what the fellow developers oppinion is.

BTW: the package is updated, including 5 bugs closed.

And I agreee completely with you, that Bug Squashing Parties arent much
better. They made me feel bad, too.

I have so many open bugs I would love to see a patch... I habe NO package I
want to see a NMU.

BTW: if you have the time to look at it, fix the recursion tests in adns in
ia64 for me, Branden.
