New upstream releases are not material for a NMU, have a look at the
Developers Reference (this is true except under very rare circumstances,
or if the maintainer allowed such NMU).
If you think that chkrootkit could use a bit of help, perhaps you
should contact the maintainer and offer your help as a co-maintainer?
Or if you already did and received no response after a reasonable
period of time, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe
the maintainer _may_ be not active any more.

Uhm, you shouldn't close those for which you introduced no changes in
the README.Debian file from the changelog. Instead, you sould use
email@example.com, etc. Again, check the Developers Reference.

Q: How do Debian developers play Russian rulette?
A: Everone contributes a key revocation certificate and chooses a number
from one to ten. Then everybody executes a random generator - if it's a
match, then his revocation certificate is submitted to the keyservers.
