Shouldn't these bugs be RC then? IMHO yes, I just upgraded the
severity. Please feel free to downgrade if you (or anybody else)

I can help you with uploading, but I don't have time to prepare a
proper NMU. Regarding nedit's outstanding 31 bugs (+5 wishlist) and
its poor maintenance, a NMU should do more than just fixing this prerm

However, just try to send madkiss an NMU announcement; the last time I
did that for qt-x11-free, he uploaded an updated version then. 

If you want to take further steps, you are welcome to contact me (in
private) if you need assistance with uploading and/or a second look.

Have a nice day!
