Ok. I've added you to the alioth project, so you should have commit
access now to the svn repo. About the uploads, please read Frank's
mail about the organization, those need to be coordinated, but I
don't think we have been lacking in that regard anyway.

I'm sorry that you have felt the need for this request due to those
patches not being applied, I'll take the blame, as I've been meaning
to merge most of the stuff from Ubuntu (as a side note I'm quite happy
that you have been filing those bug reports with the patches).

The fact that I've not done so has been actually the bug report that
you mention below (which also influenced a bit in me going silent
during last few weeks, the other reason for the silence has been that
I went on holidays and expected I would spare more time for Debian
related stuff, which I didn't).

Some weeks ago I started considering applying them anyway, although
by reverting the formatting changes (which I think should be done
regardless, otherwise the diff gets quite messy).
