Let's see: Thomas has a bunch of "trivial data and typo" bugs that have
languished for two years. Annoying, but hardly earth shaking.

OTOH, Wolfgang Sourdeau uploads an NMU without even the courtesy of a
e-mail to Thomas AND with an invalid e-mail address.

And you guys think that Thomas is in the wrong for objecting? Amazing.

If the fixes are too trivial to be worth a simple e-mail notification,
then they're too trivial to be worth an NMU.
