Jonas: I mentioned this, but I don't think we should maintain it under our group. If someone else is interested in maintaining it, I would suggest it be maintained as a native package. IMO if the software is unmaintained upstream, it should be removed from Debian, unless there is a large and established user base (this does not look to be the case).
I agree that packages without _users_ should be dropped.I disagree that packages without _upstream_ should be either dropped or adopted: It makes sense to maintain as upstream + diff even if known that there will not be any new upstream releases.
In the concrete case I agree it should be dropped, not because upstream has gone but because it has (virtually) no users.
