  Well, yeah, there was a matching bug in my procmailrc, that saw all my
alioth mail to into .debian.${MATCH}/ -> .debian./ and oddly I wasn't
subscribed to this maildir. The procmail filter is now fixed.

  Well I don't get why you seek sponsors outside from the team then.
That's what I call rogue. In my world, when I ask for sponsoring of a
package that has a responsive team, I call that hijacking. Sorry it took
me 10 days to figure that my procmail was broken, you had bad luck, but
I can't imagine how waiting only 7 (‽) days for hijacking a package is
appropriate behaviour.

  I'm glad.

  I don't see how it can be a problem.

  Like said _I_ won't do the job, but I don't see a problem with it
being in unstable _IF_ done inside from the team. You're free to join it
btw, but I'm not an alioth pkg-lighttpd admin, so you'll have to nag one
of them, private mails would probably work easier. And if in those
conditions, I'll gladly sponsor uploads.
