almost exactly a year ago I sponsored your first upload of schleuder…

…and I fully support this. In this last year I reviewed and sponsored
schleuder, schleuder-cli, ruby-mail-gpg and ruby-gpgme (so sid and
stretch-backports) and always had pleasant experiences doing so, except
maybe that it has become a little boring over time, because by now your
uploads leave me with nothing to say, comment or do, except sign+upload

I really enjoyed your dedication to getting details right and am convinced
you'll continue to do so.

Thus I think you are ready to upload these packages on your own right

Thank you for all your contributions too! It's really awesome that schleuder is apt
installable on stable again! Have lots of fun in Debian & beyond!
