Hi Bernhard.  Please see [http://bugs.debian.org/282283], reported by
dpkg's lead maintainer Scott James Remnant.  After reading the bug log,
you may wish to take over from me there.  You would seem at first glance
to have the motivation and the skills for it, and by contributing this
patch it seems to me that you have earned the right.

As to me, I have not lost interest, but my progress on # 282283 is too
slow for Dpkg development to wait for me, if there is a more capable
person who also has interest and who will devote more time than I will.
If you do not act on this, eventually I will, but in the meantime you
are not required to wait for me.
