I intend to do my best . But other people (the reviewers) are also involved.

So as a first step you can start with my proposed srpm's:
 * Check/build them yourselves. Report problems/deficiencies.
 * See if they are OK for your use case.
 * As a bonus, if you find why '%check' in po-debconf failes -- even better.

Here is the checklist:
 - po-debconf almost OK, waiting for cwickert comments (reviewer)
 - dpkg upgrade, waiting for maintainer, he would try to finish it this weekend
 - debhelper, ready (IMO), reviewer is silent for ages -- can you take it?
 - pbuilder, working package, need cleanup (me), after the 3 pre-requisites
   are ready it would be justified to bother the reviewer.

If it's there and you can see it, it's REAL
If it's there and you can't see it, it's TRANSPARENT
If it's not there and you can see it, it's VIRTUAL
If it's not there and you can't see it, it's GONE!
