Send a polite request to the package's maintainer asking them to put out
a new version with the upstream fixes.  =)

The maintainer's email address is in here:


(as well as many other places, eg dpkg -p kaffe)

Before sending any abusive comments though, check the kaffe bug page to
see if there have been any 'wishlist' requests to upgrade to the latest
sources.  Also ask the maintainer if there is any reason for (him)
holding back ...

Remember, you can always download the Debian kaffe package sources, put
the new upstream kaffe source in it, test it out, and send it to the
maintainer yourself.  =)
