Dear Andreas Beckmann --

First, I would like to say "Thank You" for the patch upload to
experimental / sid as a workaround solution.

Second, I have a question(s) about the package migrating to the testing branch:

I was wonder if it will migrate to "wheezy" at some point during the
freeze so that the package is available for the upcoming stable
release?  And if possible, any time frame?

The reason I ask is that it has been more than 10 days and has the
package has not migrated.  I realize that this is probably due to the
current freeze that is in place to prepare for the new Debian stable.
Also, according to the QA Package page,
<http://packages.qa.debian.org/n/nvidia-graphics-drivers.html>, the
following is stated "The package has not yet entered testing even
though the 10-day delay is over. Check why." and "Not touching package
due to block request by freeze (contact debian-release if update is
needed)".  Perhaps the debian-release team needs to be contacted to
allow the package, or maybe it just takes longer to test that packages
work properly during a freeze.

Thanks again.
