   Oh, please. Does it take TWO YEARS to double check that TX means
Texas (as in #150264)? Anyone having a look at the triviality of
#249871, #249867, #150264, #249897, #249879 and #249882 can only think
the package is simply unmaintained.

   The only information that was updated from the say-so of the bug
reporter is the postal code in #147321, which is more than two years old
and provides a link to support the claim anyway.

   Instead of complaining about the NMU, which although it ignored the
procedure was totally justified IMHO, maybe you could hand over the
package or look for a co-maintainer. Debian's quality is not just about
RC bugs.
