Sorry, but that's not the way Free Software works. Don't wait for
others to tell you what to do, show us the code!

And what you say is even not true. I already said that I will happily
sponsor a yaboot upload if it fixes reported RC bugs. This is equally
valid for all the other relevant packages. Also the release team will
generally approve uploads that fix RC bugs. They want to release
Debian after all. 


Milan Kupcevic sent me a yaboot package for review today. I'll look
into it tomorrow. So your assumption that there is nothing going on is
simply wrong.
