Yesterday I discovered a package and started to fix it a bit.

I thought "better get the fixes into Oneiric". Now I find the package was dropped.

What should I do to recover from this? I'm sure Canonical isn't a bunch of tyrants, it's just bad luck and/or bad timing that the package got dropped just before I was in a position to help fix it.

But what should I do to recover and get the package back into Oneiric? Where is stuff like this documented? How can I open a bug report about a missing package?
