I can give a few examples of outdated packages having non-responsive
maintainers, wine is one of them. See the wishlist bugs! Finally a set
of NMUs solved that problem. And that package is not at all related to
Hurd. Wine does not even build there yet. Don't confuse my contributions
to the Hurd with my opinions on the Weezy release, please.

Things like that happens too, but is not related to the Wheezy release,
Hurd is not a release architecture, didn't you know that?
