And not acting on a critical problem for several months wouldn't?
Yes, it was naughty to go behind your (and the rest of the dpkg-teams')
back.  An apology would be in place.  However, if the NMU fixes the
problem without introducing new problems, why get upset?!

As an employer, I'd rather have my employees acting when something is
broken than sticking with protocol by waiting for several months hoping
that others will fix the problem.
