Re: what to do is maintainer is lacking? (was: wine-unstable in Debian)

The point of NMUs is *helping* a maintainer which, for different
reasons, is temporarily unable to fix specific issues in their
packages. If the NMU-er keeps that principle in mind, everything else
descends more or less naturally.
much of you wrote here make a lot of sense, and I think it would be a
good stem for an update the Developers Reference (and therefore mark
DEP1 obsolete after four years of good service to Debian).
Why is DEP-1 even marked as accepted? It's been rejected after all...
