The Debian Med team was flooded by about 50 mails which is hard to cope
in two weeks.  I actually do not feel real pressure to even try to meet
this time limit considering that those leaf packages do not serve as a
proper intrusion vector into important machines.  What I'm doing is to
inform upstream step by step (as my spare time permits) about the
problem and tell them that we as Debian maintainers do feel incapable to
react in a short time frame for this amount of programs but will try to
cooperate with upstream to fix the issue.

It would help if there were some additional guidelines for upstream that
might simplify the attempt to fix it.  Can we provide some specific

Kind regards
