+1 maintenance report

Hi Sergio,

I notice in this report that most of the items you worked on requiring
source changes have Debian bugs or MPs as references, but there is no
mention of what is done to get them resolved in Ubuntu.  We want to push
fixes upstream to Debian and minimize unnecessary delta, but the purpose of
+1 maintenance is to resolve items in the devel-proposed queue.  As long as
these packages remain in -proposed, there's a cost to the team (both in
terms of contributing to longer britney run times, and in retreading
packages in the queue that have already been looked at).

Can you elaborate how each of these package fixes are getting into Ubuntu,
and where the progress is being tracked?

Related also to Brian's comments about having a handoff section in reports! 
But IMO it's ideal to have this all in an update-excuse bug instead so that
people don't have to find the right email in the archive to get information
about the state.
