Stable is frozen, we do not change packages there unless there is a very
good reason to do so. The bug you are fixing does not seem to qualify as
release critical thus we need to deal with the problem as is.
OK, thanks for your details. I do also think, that this bug is not a release
critical rather an important bug.
It is possible to fix non-RC bugs in updates to stable (that are deemed
important enough to be fixed). The maintainer and the (stable) release
managers have to agree with it though.
In stable the problem persists, that policyd-weight has a non-functional
ipv6 blacklist enabled that may leed to spuriously rejected mail.
It would just be one modification to fix that bug (e.g. comment out the
non functional blacklist). What is the right way to go here? This Bug is
fixed in my latest uploaded package to unstable.
Taking over maintenance is a good idea. The release managers usually
require bugs to be fixed in testing before approving changes to stable.
