I'd like this fix
(https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=865316) to be part of
9.1, but one of the maintainers of the package seems to not agree with
the severity [1]. It is already fixed upstream and updated package is

What are my options? Do I go ahead with an NMU (the severity is not
lowered on the bug report) ? Such attitude to casually break critical

install a fresh system and you can't get to make keyboard for your
language work, something that was always there, is seriously frustrating.
