Ah, well, in how can we help the ftp-masters ? As a maintainer, the only way
to help on this would be to send some kind of explanation of why a previously
existing package changed and thus got need of NEW handling. There is no
evidence that this message get read, is indeed a help to ftp-master, or just
plain lost time on the maintainer's side.

Right now the only way to help is to get hold of a ftp-master on irc and bug
him about your own individial package in NEW, or get someone else with more
prestige or whatever to do the bugging for you.
