You are supremely qualified, and would be a great asset to Debian. As
Steve said, it's easy to find sponsors, and I'm happy to be one if
you'd like. I have two conditions before handing over the package.
1) This doesn't consume effort you'd otherwise spend on upstream
Gnocatan work. Relatively speaking, if Debian Developers are a dime
a dozen, an active Gnocatan author is worth at least $1.50.
2) You have to take over before August. By take over I mean both
starting Debian's New Maintainer process (which is slow) and uploading
the package at least once using a sponsor.
If that sounds good to you, the package is yours. Otherwise we'll
bring in some truly fresh blood. :)
