A good start :)

Not good enough if you wish to become a Debian Developer yourself,
but if you will commit to looking after the packages and can live with
having to make sponsored uploads only it shouldn't be a problem.

It's unfortunate that the upstream author isn't responsive, as this
can be very useful when making packages, and handling bug reports
I'm a bit disappointed that the package is split into two version,
it would be nice if there could be a way of only having one which
would detect which kind of X11 windowing system you were running
and load the correct code.
Still it's a pretty application, pretty unique as far as I can
see and very cute.
I will sponsor it, give me a few days to look over it properly
and if there are problems I'll mail you privately.

Have you mailed the maintainer to inform him/her?
