So what?  One email with "I am going to upload PHP5 to resolve #341420" would
really delay release.  I don't find it impolite, I find it very rude.

Sorry, but this is really bad approach - attacking php maintainers when somebody
else made mistake of not communicating that he is going to upload.
This is basic
courtesy between DDs (at least it was in the old days).  We are all only people
with real lives and sometimes the time is lacking, or we forgot about bugs
or whatever - but nothing of it could be excuse for doing NMU without
prior notice
- sending email is not that hard compared to preparing proper NMU.
