Regardless of the maintainer's comments, DDs should not sponsor NMUs; it is
the responsibility of the uploading developer to personally verify the
correctness of the changes in an NMU, and it is incorrect to upload changes
in an NMU that have not first been forwarded to the BTS, therefore it's
simpler if you upload any patches to the BTS and ask someone to do an NMU
for the bug, rather than asking someone to upload based on packages that
you've prepared separately.

To ask for an NMU, debian-devel may be a better list.
