I honestly don’t understand the urgency. You’ve been spamming me with
messages about drawing while the package in Debian in only two versions
behind the upstream. There’s only been a couple of minor fixes upstream,
this can certainly wait until I find time.
Also, make sure you understand: the fact you proposed an NMU doesn’t mean
it has been accepted. So you cannot meaningfully claim that you "worked alone
on packages like Drawing for Debian". All of the messages you keep posting
seems a bit like stepping on my toes and hurrying me up for no reason.
Please let me maintain the package on the pace I find appropriate.
