As I already did for cl-geodesics [1], if the software is working I
would like to keep it in the next stable release.

The maintainers are exceptionally busy because ATM I am the only one
available.  I have already called for help in the past, but no one has
volunteered yet, thus I try to keep up as much as I can.

FWIW, the Debian Common Lisp Team is already on the LowThresholdNmu [2],
thus every NMU is welcome.  In case the NMU is ready I can sponsor them
as well, since it is easier to check the NMU than digging into any bug.

Now, going back to this particular bug...

Peter, thank you for the patch, but could you please prepare another one
without the comment about the last missing dependency?  It has nothing
to do with the single patch, which BTW I would call something like

  * debian/control: (Closes: #505196) add cl-ironclad to Depends:

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
