Isn't that exactly what bug #369130 means? I thought it was the
responsibility of the package maintainer to run 'wnpp-alert' to be
aware if the packages they depend on need help.

It was retitled as ITA on 2007-08-19, and not altered since then. That
means it won't show up in 'wnpp-alert', which is unfortunate since
it's been rather a long time.
