A QA upload is an upload of an orphaned package with the Maintainer:
field set to "Debian QA Group <email@example.com>". There is no
need to use NMU-style versioning for such uploads, or to seek special

Yes, feel free. If you've seen recent activity by other people on the
package in question, then you might like to post to debian-qa saying
that you're working on it. If somebody is currently in the process of
adopting the package (and please do check this), then you should contact
them to make sure you aren't duplicating work. Otherwise, fixing
orphaned package bugs is definitely a useful thing to do.
