Adam, as far as I can tell you're *always* too busy to read e-mail. I
remind you of the BTS move to spohr, which I mentioned on owner@bugs
multiple times several weeks in advance; but the first you claimed to
have heard of it was when you said something along the lines of "eh,
what, why wasn't I told about this?" the very evening I was performing
the move.

Responsiveness with respect to dpkg is essential to the project.
