Hi Daniel,

unfortunately the way the handover of release responsibilities was
handled is not considered up to scratch for at least one downstream
community, Arch Linux.

More specifically, since no formal trust path between your PGP key
and Jiri's has been established, the Arch maintainers are not
comfortable updating the package past 6.5.0. The situation has been
in a standstill for several months now, and Arch users are
increasingly suffering from it. See [1] and following comments for
more details on this.

Can you and Jiri (CC'd) please get in touch and arrange for his key
to be signed with yours, so that a proper trust path is established?
I would really love to see this resolved once and for all.

Thanks in advance to both of you!
