The NMU campaign takes care of that interaction. In early 2005, we
established a practice described in

This practice is very careful about the NMUer/maintainer
interaction. see the proposed mail templates which have been rewritten
after....I had an incident with a maintainer who had about the same
reaction than you..:-)

So, indeed, in case someone in the NMU team forgets that Md packages
are taboo and send you a NMU intent mail, please take care to mention
him/her that you don't feel that need. Your will will be respected.

Actually, I don't completely agree with the policy of letting
translations rot in the BTS, which is a bad signal sent to
translators, imho. However, I didn't checked if that's really the case
for *your* packages, Marco....:)
