if I understand the bug log right:
| Bug reassigned from package 'postler' to 'hotssh'. Request was from
| Alexander Reichle-Schmehl <tolimar@debian.org> to
| control@bugs.debian.org. (Tue, 03 Jan 2012 21:31:10 GMT)

This means an RC bug was left unfixed for half a year; also, I think all
release team members agree it's way too late to let any new packages
into testing at this point, unless there's a good reason to do so. I'm
not sure hotssh qualifies.

(That waf thing is insane.)

Feel free to fix the package by uploading to unstable anyway. If it's in
shape by the time wheezy is released, it should migrate to testing soon
after that, and you'll be able to upload a backport to wheezy-backports
when it's available.
