    If you need to apply a patch to one of my packages for a
non-critical bug in order to complete an integration work, please send
me the patch by BTS and if I do not reply in a few days feel free to
upload an NMU.

    How many Debian maintainers think the same? I'm sure there are a lot
of them who do not soffer of the "this is my package, go away" syndrome.
