It's usually better to push the version tag only after the corresponding
upload was accepted.  There's a chance yours won't, because you forgot
to put yourself into Uploaders, making this a non-maintainer upload with
a wrong version number.

The wheezy branch seems up-to-date to me: it's at debian/1.6.1-5+deb7u2
and the oldstable version is indeed 1.6.1-5+deb7u2.

I think the jessie branch should have been merged back into master
before the release of 1.7.2-2.  It was created to hold high urgency
security uploads to unstable while 1.7 was already in experimental, if I
read the Git history correctly.  Russ, can you provide any input on
this?  I'd merge it now to salvage the changelog entries of 1.6.1-6 and
1.6.1-7 and tie off its history, freeing the branch name for potential
stable uploads.

Yes, unfortunately I still lack the power for that.
