some remarks:
  • although I was at the bug squashing party during the Paris Debian MiniConf I was more productive at home; I guess there was just to much other stuff to do (like going to talks and meet people) in Paris :)
  • still no single complaint for my NMUs; but a few "thank you"s & some friendly requests to delay/cancel an NMU from active maintainers
  • enrico sent some "should we remove this package from testing?" mails to several bugs today. IMO that's a great next step that will bring us closer to the release – grazie!
