Yes, I spoke to them when they were first announced, but I believe they
have (had?) enough of their own work to do for a while. I'm happy to keep
the package to keep it from being orphaned, because as you say it is
quite trivial, and seldom has bugs other than 'new upstream'.
I made the offer about co-maintainer because IIRC you've shown an
interest in it before and that would let you close bugs and the like
without having to have it dropped in your lap as your primary
If you're not sure what I mean by co-maintainer, see, er, the developers
reference I think. It's now a recognised role.
