Yes, that's also what I guessed from the logs and the code.

Upstream was in CC in all these mails. I'm urgently hoping for some

While I really agree to this statement I think there is few chance that
somebody else will step in. We are just needing to maintain this as a
predependency for two important packages of the Debian Med team. As you
know RFP bugs are really rarely resolved and thus we try to drain the
competence to handle this from upstream which is IMHO the fallback for
maintainers in any case.
