I already sent a patch to the package maintainer; he has yet to
integrate it.

Isn't the purpose of NMUs to cover for, er, "busy" developers?  I see
people like Joey Hess doing this all the time.

I want to help Debian be a better distribution, but if I have to keep
jumping through hoops in order to become an "official" developer, I'm
afraid it's not going to be worth my time.  Isn't being able to fix bugs
