Have you mailed Bradley privately as well? If not, it's most likely
that he is not aware at all of your efforts, since our BTS does not
send a copy to the submitter of a bug when you mail email@example.com
(you can read more about this in http://bugs.debian.org and in section
5.8 of the Developers Reference). This would explain why you didn't
receive an answer from him either.
So I recommend that you reset the "waiting counter" to zero, and wait
two or three weeks for a response. I'm sure Bradley will be glad to
hear somebody (two people, even!) is interested in adopting his
I've also bounced your message to firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending
mail in Debian, it's usually nice to CC the appropriate bug if one
exists, so that other people have quick access to the information (a
message in a bug is found much more easily than a mailing list post;
plus one would have to _know_ in advance that such message exists).

In my opinion, the most fruitful and natural play of the mind is in
conversation. I find it sweeter than any other action in life; and if I
were forced to choose, I think I would rather lose my sight than my
hearing and voice.
