Please calm down.
Why? There's _no_ excuse not to mail the BTS before NMUing.
You're free to discuss with lamont how to handle such
cases in the future (and communicating him your anger) but please
How to NMU is documented in the developers-reference -- you mail a patch
to the BTS, indicate that you're going to NMU via the BTS, then NMU.
Normally you have more than five seconds between those actions, but even
if ten seconds is too long to wait, you should still do all those
things. Heck, you should mail *especially* if ten seconds is too long to
wait -- just to explain why the problem is so serious so there's some
hope the maintainer can avoid it in future.
The whole point of the "mail the BTS" policy is to avoid maintainers not
knowing what's going on, or why it's going on.
(Apparently Lamont's connectivity was screwed up, which caused the lack
of email in this case, rather than lack of knowledge or effort)
