I haven't contacted Andrew because I had the impression that he was going
to give Jesus a chance to be the Debian maintainer.
I pinged Jesus about a month ago, and he said that he was making changes
requested by the filmgimp maintainer, who apparently is Andrew.
I'm not trying to air dirty laundry, so I guess I'll contact them both
privately and see if I can help get things rolling. Thanks.
