It's not my first sponsored upload but the second one. The first one is already
in stable, this is just a small update. The other side of the view is -> I'm
pretty new in officially packaging stuff for debian. So a new wannabe maintainer
is motivated and wants to get things fixed. On the other hand - the package is
uploaded since weeks, nobody replies on the RFS's - and so not only the DD get's
annoyed but also me because just nothing happens.

In fact it's not the 10th try as suggested by the subject. This was just for
"getting attention" purposes.

I've uploaded the package three weeks ago.
