That is a Serious bug, and is a FTBFS, so AIUI, it is RC. So it can be filex
in a NMU. However, According the the Developer's reference, only DD's can
NMU. If that is true, then sponsored NMU are not allowed. However, tradition
holds against this, as there have be numerous cases of sponsored NMU's.
Assuming the DevRef is in error, you should prepepare an NMU, following the
rules , publish the packages someplace public, and send a message to this
list with a title beginning "[RFS] NMU".
