I don't see anything there pertaining to my package.  Perhaps I am
overlooking something, can you please be more specific?

Hmm, there are numerous such meta packages in Debian, are they now
against policy or otherwise discouraged?  How is a user to automatically
update to the latest version?

As you could see in my message, I did ask Joerg again, but with no reply
for a week, so nobody but Joerg knows what I did or didn't convince him
of.  Joerg, can you please comment?

Or by "ask (or try)", do you mean that I should re-upload again?

Thank you for the prompt reply.
