Mmh, ok, then it'kll take some time. i'll try to get 3.4.6 into sid and testing
first before I upload 3.5.1 or 3.5.2 to sid

Nah. People using stable hava a reson for doing this. But you use testing (a development
version) anyway.

That's what I am doing, but it takes time..

I guess this depends on whether the maintainer has time to deal with stuff
like this itself - in this case here I mainly just forward them and close
them whenever upstream did it (which might never happen), so it brings little
value here. I simply have no time for serious upstream work.

And it of course depends on the package size and whether it's trivial to fix
something or not...
