using quilt is nice, but not an ultimate requirement.
You would get patches to your packaging with a higher probability if you placed your
debian folder on a public repository. This is also why patch systems like quilt became so
popular. Please consider to join pkg-scicomp or something like that on alioth. Joining
such a community will also help to find sponsors, btw.
If you read Debian-announce, you may be aware of the new debian-policy that is out.
