I find the procedure to become Debian Maintainer a bit too extensive :)
Not that this is a Bad Thing, ofcourse :)

This does sound appealing... I have some experience in creating and
maintaining Debian packages, but I'm not sure if I will always have
enough time to officially manage them.

Ah, I think was a bit unclear before. The packages I mentioned were all
fetched from CPAN and packaged. Some of them I packaged manually, some
through dh-make-perl, which is great although buggy :)
These are XS. dh-make-perl doesn't do so well with these.
These are Pure Perl.
Please let me know what you think is the best next course of action...
