It is sometimes claimed that the strong ownership of packages by their maintainers is detrimental to Debian's progress in cases when a maintainer can't, for whatever reason, fix a problem speedily. The ["NMU"] procedure takes a long time, at least about two weeks, depending on the value of "some".

The maintainers listed below declare that their packages (all, or the ones listed specifically below) may be fixed and uploaded without delay, at any time, as long as the NMU procedure in the Debian Developer's Reference is otherwise followed. You don't need to contact the maintainers beforehand, and you don't need to use a delayed upload queue. If the package maintainer is active, it is polite to let them have a stab at fixing the problem first.

Every change should be to fix a reported bug. Changes should not be frivolous. For example, don't change from debhelper to cdbs just because you prefer it that way; if you really want to make such big changes to the package, talk with the maintainer first, and maybe offer to adopt the package.

This list is utterly and totally opt-in. The above relaxation of time limits does not apply to anyone else's packages.
