Hi all,

I would prefer a stronger wording, for example:

  While preparing the patch, pease take them into account the
  package-specific practices documented by the maintainer in <ulink
  If your NMU is not an urgent matter, it is your responsability to
  reduce the burden of getting your changes integrated back in the
  normal package workflow.

Have a nice day,
