Sorry to be so long to notice this message.
I've been interested in yaz only because I was trying to package Koha.
I still have an IPT on Koha, but I did not make a lot of progress here
(mostly because I do not have enough free time).
At the time I looked at yaz, I uploaded it to experimental because I did
not want to break anything (it was before etch) and I do not know enough
yaz to know if its API changed.
I can maintain it if you want , but I will not be a regular user of it.
 only if the current maintainer agree or if it is declared MIA
