That's exactly the point of this discussion. I would probably do the
same... so I thought that we could setup a friendly environment allowing
a group of people to maintain those packages with the help of external
contributors which are more interested in the package.
And I found that the debian-perl group is working quite well maintaining
all their packages in a single subversion repository where all
developers in the group have write access.
So I proposed something similar.
