Hi Mike

Please go ahead. I will be off for some time due to a planned surgery so it would be very good if you can fix this.

Ok. Thanks for that.

I claimed tightvnc in dla-needed.txt. As you are the maintainer, let 
me know if you want to pick that one up instead (I am happy to include 
it in my fix upload series, if not).

My plan is to go over VNC related packages over the next couple of 
days and also propose .debdiffs for stretch versions.
