Ping? :)



Thanks. We'd need to see a finalised (and tested) debdiff against the current stable package before approving the upload, however.

The second patch also introduces a behavioural change, in that it will cause the previous target name to stop working, which is generally not okay for a stable update. Does dput.cf support the concept of target aliases, or "includes", or something similar that would allow us to avoid having two targets which differ only in name?
