It would be nice, to have 0.7.x officially uploaded to Debian.

David Krovich, the Debian maintainer of DRBD, seems to be on vacation. 
His last activity - upload drbd 0.6.12-6 - dates back to 2004-06-09.
See http://packages.qa.debian.org/d/drbd.html

I think, I should write a friendly mail to David.

But if he does not answer, how long should we wait?

And which actions should we suggest to the Debian-devel community:

- a NMU (Non Maintainer Upload) of the latest 0.7.x

- an upload to experimental? (see 
but this was written on 2004-05-16, and drbd 0.7.x is nearly stable now 
- isn't it?)

- motivating Bernd Schubert to become Co-Maintainer of drbd

- asking debian-mentors@lists.debian.org for a solution
