No problem, I don't walk away :-)

I opened a new bug #635280 against libgeier.

I've rebuilt both packages and uploaded them to debian-mentors. While
researching, I stumbled upon libgeier 0.11-1.1 and incorporated these
changes as well.

I added NMU-diffs for the debian changes only, because I think adding
the upstream diffs from libgeier 0.11 to 0.12 and taxbird from 0.15 to
0.16 don't add any value.

In the latest uploads to debian-mentors, I also added the (Closes: #)
tags to the changelog, which is not reflected in the NMU-diffs attached
to the bugs.

Regards, Olaf
