On the top there is written np&mp, that is enough, because it is clearly
stated *where* to direct requests, and you contacted the right place.

Done that now.

?? It is clearly written:
	Please send comments and suggestions to the Debian TeX Task Force: debian-tex-maint@lists.debian.org, (or if you think that is related to an genuine TeX live problem, to the tex-live mailing list). 
?? What else do you want??? That *is* the proper contact address.

Concerning updates, it alwas depends on my time and energy, and on the
Debian release cycle. It is useless to package 2010 if we then have to package
2011 for the next stable. And then, it needs a complete rewrite I didn't
have time tikll now, and not sure *when* I will find time for it.
