RFC: quilt-el

Hi mentors,

I'd like to package quilt-el and submitted ITP[1] about two months ago.

[1] http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=364611

Now I have a problem with it. I can't decide which version I should package.
Firstly, its stable release version[2] is quite old and has many bugs. Second,
it has developing version[3], and it also has a bug. I sent upstream author
some patches. One is only for bug fix, and the others are for add some new
features. Unfortunately these are not applied yet. Finally, one month ago, I
requested him to apply at least bug fix patche and release new stable release.
However he had't replied to me so far. In this case, what should I do?

1. package stable release version
2. package developing version and don't apply any extra patches
3. package developing version and apply bug fix patch
4. wait for upstream to apply bug fix patch and release stable release
5. something else...
