Afaict the only thing that is open for discussion is whether you
followed the protocol in developer's reference correctly.
And ticking of the checklist there is just one missing piece of
information - the timeline. How much time did pass between the
"intend to NMU"-mail and the actual upload? (Did you use a DELAYED

maintainer and uploading the package to ftp-master would have been
appropriate (7 days - (release-cycle bonus + rc-bug bonus)).
