bug reports for x-symbol and searched for answers of him to these

I looked at <URL:https://db.debian.org/> and
<URL:http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=dunham@debian.org> but
these didn't show much information. Is the echelon service (mentioned in
the Developer's Reference) only available after real logins at db.d.o?

Yeah, but then I would probably need to beg a DD for sponsorship, right?
I have already thought of preparing an updated package of x-symbol but
then I just decided to install the current upstream package (which also
doesn't seem to be heavily maintained nowadays) via the given
instruction for GNU Emacs on the webpage.

If I created a native Debian package of the new upstream version there
would be the problem that I can't test it under XEmacs since I only use
GNU Emacs.
