Firefox 7.0 was pushed to stable with getting karma in 1 day:

I wasn't aware of the broken mozilla-noscript until I got the stable
update of firefox, so I had no chance of pushing an update fast enough.
I did immediately an update, which took 9 days to hit stable:

Instead of getting one +1 karma, there have been two bug reports, that
noscript needs an update, but without karma, that didn't help to
resolve this:

So there doesn't need to be more co-maintainers (which is welcomed
anyway), but it would help to get such updates pushed to stable directly
like it was without the forced period in updates-testing or a heads up
before doing such an update.
