I'm very unhappy that you read the statement of "we can get new upstream
versions" as "the freeze doesn't apply to us, does it?".

I do wonder why I see pyc files in the new version in debdiff.  It's also too
large to review.

So it's the question if we go the "if it blows to pieces, you get to keep them"
mode.  But as the future uploads will be out of our control anyway, I guess
I just need to ask you if you are confident with your current package.

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern
