Hi Wouter,

Thanks for all of your work and attention on this, I understand your
frustration about this - I've frequently been a victim of Ubuntus broken
Muine packages my self.

No-one has refused anything, it's just that no-one has put the work into
 getting the fix into Ubuntu.

The policy linked above has the full description but basically someone
needs to:
 * Grab the upstream patch
 * Make a debdiff.
 * Get the upload sponsored
 * Get some people to confirm the upload fixed the problem
(along with some editing of this bug report)

I'm sorry that this hasn't happened yet but Muine is usually a volunteer
maintained package, and no-one has volunteered to do this stuff.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
