A message like this makes you the perfect victim :-) for my question:
what should a debian maintainer do to have his or her packages in
universe in a good shape? I'm even willing to build the packages myself,
but I fail to see how the pieces fit together. Where do universe bugs
go? Who decides which version goes into universe? What do to with my
packages that cannot be 'source only' like cmucl?

The fact that the MOTS seem to place a high importance on IRC, which I
cannot use at work, and the wiki seems a little off-putting.
