I accepted maintainership because I am the upstream author, and having
the package in Debian/unstable is a great way to make sure it is
stable. I can also try out new features, and Debian will have it first.

Currently I am working on "bootlogd". I have finally found a good
non-kernel solution to the "how do I find out the real console"
problem that it has. I made major enhancements to it today. I also
fixed several Debian bugs in other parts of the package, including
some that were sent to me directly and not to the BTS.

In short, I am actively developing the Debian and non-debian parts
of it. It's just that I happen to do this in bursts, and some people
get upset when the bursts they develop in don't always overlap
with mine.
