A lot of that is waiting on the C++ ABI transition, and dependencies. And if 
you NMU, please make sure you know what you're doing and read the bugs in 
question, so that you are not hurting more than you help.

I don't want to rant, but since you are urging NMUs and apparently doing 
them yourself. Your recent NMU of cheeesetracker compiled it against two 
C++ ABIs; you could avoided this if you read the bug report and my 
response. Also, always contact the maintainer first, and use a delayed 
upload queue. You did neither of these when NMUing cheesetracker.
