is the decision about rc-buggy-ness one for ftp-master?  usually these issues
are sorted out between package maintainer, bug submitter, release team, and
maybe ctte.  I don't see ftp-master involved with that.  Sure it makes sense to
reject *obvious* rc issues, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

I really like the approach of some ftp-masters to accept a package and then file
rc-issues, if there are some, like adding updated copyright information.  This
way you also have a place to discuss the issue.
