Perhaps you should apply anyway - you should be able to do NMUs at
least if the Maintainer is inresponsive. Plus you could do porter-NMUs
for the Hurd.

Yeah, additional information (version x compiles cleanly; patch from
bug #32345 needed; not useful for Hurd; etc.) would be fine.

ATM, your best bet is to check out the bugs of a package. Porting
changes should end up in the BTS, ideally under a heading that
contains "Hurd" somewhere...
