Well, we can hardly argue the contrary in this specific case.

My personal impression is however that for that package, there is just a
lack of manpower: Michael has not replied to the bug report since
September and I know via personal communication that Martin is very busy
ATM, and generally looking for co-maintainers. So don't take this
personal (/ don't overgeneralize) and remember that you can follow what
happens with upstart in Debian by subscribing to the PTS for it. More
generally, I guess that the current maintainers would welcome some
additional helping hands *g*.
