Ah, that's where I wanted to get. If there's a month to get the stuff
done, maybe allowing game-NMUing two weeks after a patch has been
submitted with no reaction from the maintainer. Hmm... what to do if you
fix it during the third week, then?

Well, my point. I wouldn't like getting NMUed just because I took 3 days
to examine the proposed fix.
