Heimdal tends to get caught in the same situation that OpenAFS is in,
where there's no one in Ubuntu specifically paying attention and the
Debian maintainer isn't really paying attention to Ubuntu.  It looks like
this may be changing; the newly active Debian maintainer seems to be doing
bug triage in Ubuntu as well.
