Thanks for your work.

I will not upload for the following reason: you're NMU'ing a package,
but not for fixing a bug that is in the BTS.

The developer's reference prescribes to only NMU for bugs that are
already reported. This is to give the maintainer a chance to comment on
it or fix it him/herself. If there's a particular urgency for the bug,
then you can file it *and* NMU it right afterwards. You need a bug to
attach the diff to anyway.

So file the bug you want to fix first.

The maintainer looks very Missing In Action from a first look. I suggest
you have the package orphaned by the QA team, see the developer's
reference for more information on this.
