As I will do before actually starting on any package. This was just a
first warning shot as an attempt to get as many packages out of the
list with a minimum of investigative work for everyone. 33% are
already cleared up.

Of cause it would help to know what packages I should leave alone. If
I forget about it and NMU one of your packages or start to orphan them
by accident or if you get a reminder note that you haven't yet replied
in a while please don't whine.

Herbert: I checked the kernel-* packages against you, anything else I
should better stay away from?
