This is admittedly not terribly clear and I raised this question in #672198 which hasn't had any activity for almost two years. For cases where the maintainer is unresponsive for an extended period, I'd recommend requesting a new version via a 'wishlist' bug, then releasing a new version as a -0.1 NMU. Others (myself included) have done this successfully. As always, thanks for your continued work in Debian. ;-) -- Chris -- Chris Knadle Chris.Knadle@coredump.us
