Was the annouced anywhere? If so, sorry, I missed it. I regularly
check debian-devel-annouce, and didn't see anything on this.
I complained to a number of people that my uploads weren't getting
accepted (actually both with main and non-us), and noone seemed to have
any idea why (at least no-one who was willing to share this with me).
I have a number of potentially serious (but easy to fix bugs) in
Heimdal, I guess it is pointless doing any more work until the upload
situation is rectified...
Also, when I aanounced an ITP on fpm, noone seemed to realize that it
was pointless too, if no uploads on nonus are being accepted (not that I
highlighted it would have to go on non-us).
So thanks anyway for your E-Mail. Now I can spend my time on more
productive tasks ;-).
