I've been informed the tone of that email was "ambiguous". In a
hopefully clearer tone: I welcome and authorise a friendly NMU,
correcting this or any other bug in mailman, to the exclusion of new
feature implementations. So, in an NMU of mailman:
- correcting bug #380876 is allowed, appreciated and welcomed
- correcting any other bug that is a fault and not lack of a feature
is allowed, appreciated and welcomed
- adding a new feature (otherwise than through a new upstream
version) is disallowed without prior arrangement.
- uploading a new upstream version (forward-porting the Debian
patches) is allowed, appreciated and welcomed
As a closing, DD or non-DD active co-maintainers are welcomed, hoped
for and necessary to achieve the level of quality expected of a
package in Debian.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further question.
