These releases were stuck in the NEW queue for a while, but they have just
made it to unstable now. The reason for sitting in NEW was that I synced

You're right, these should be moved to patches (thanks for taking care of
this). In fact one of my goals when switching to the Ubuntu packaging was to
use their patch system to remove these source changes.
