Mini DebConf in HH. I've also created a branch that bumps standard
version and updates the changelog [1] - based on that branch i've built
and uploaded the package to mentors [2] (as NMU) and created an RFS for
the package (#907275).
I'd be happy to look a bit after the package and upload new version +
creating RFS from time to time with prior consultation of the the
publicity team.
