i and several others answered this question several times via mail and
on irc now, we also asked you several times to work together with the
debian maintainer, since we dont want step away from the debian
packages. you still havent solved the issue with the several libwine-xxx
packages i asked you about several times. and no, the answer never was 
"you're not the Debian maintainer", the answer always was "please work
together with him to make sure the packaging is compatible between
debian and ubuntu". if i remember correctly the debian maintainer also
made a changelog entry in his package that he would consider use your
work for the debian packages too. did you contact him ? do you work
together now ?

to my knowledge (and i should know since i'm in the MOTU lead team that
does the approval) you havent been approved as a MOTU. could you please
tell who reviewed which packages of you to do this approval ?
