Unfortunately, the NEW queue is not publicly available, See

http://www.infodrom.org/Debian/doc/maint/Maintenance-pkgmaint.html, "new

However, I put the package as I uploaded it at:

Yes. Until then, we can download current upstream and (binary) compare
with our version. Maybe every few months or upon interesting changes?
Maybe even in an automated way. And as soon as the autotools generated
(and versioned) git repository is complete, we can even use a
traditional upstream tarball. :-)

I wonder what we do about this upstream issue:

** (dia-gnome:4887): WARNING **: Cannot open icon file
/usr/share/dia/shapes/gradient/white_gray_horzontal.png for object type
'Gradient - White-Gray (horizontal)'.

-> 2 typos in shapes/gradient/white_gray_horizontal.shape - this file is
not even present anymore in the GIT repository so I assume that it is
gone in the next upstream release.
