While I agree largely, I'd like to point out that the needed "help" is 
"just" finding somebody with upload rights to build and upload a prepared 
package, while the whole work of preparing a package conforming to Debian 
policies can be done without those rights.

Then, sure it can be hard to find a sponsor, but I am sure we could make a 
good use of the -derivatives mailing list.

So maybe it's just a perception bias, don't know.
