You should use the existing wnpp bug report #525921 to state your
intention to adopt instead of creating a new one. Please add a note to
#525921 that you are intending to adopt the package, retitle it from O:
to ITA: as described here  and you can also set your self
as the owner of the bug report as well if you like.
You should also add [ITA] to the subject line of your RFS bug report as
well, as described here .
Hopefully you will find a sponsor soon.
