You could have named the package in question (geda-utils) and the bug
report in question (#434314), but well...

It is part of a Release Goal, thus severity important and 0-day NMU-able
if older than 10 days, especially if there was no maintainer response at
all since 16 May 2007, which is the case here.

Though I have to say that it would have been better, of course, not to
disrupt testing migrations.

Just contact me in private if you need the aging criteria waived,
*after* all builds arrived (i.e. if they arrive before the 10 days
have passed).

Kind regards,
