Not incommunicado but busy which is quite different. I am really busy
at this time with my postgrad, and I think I will be able to give
faster responses in two weeks (I am traveling to Spain for attending
some quantum chemistry conferences).

I have uploaded libsilly to the archive, but again, I haven't had the
time for closing this bug.

I am aware of this bug, too. I started working on it two days ago, but
I haven't finished.

Sure. I agree.

I like this idea. If one is really so interested in a package it is a
good thing to offer help as well. Actually, I was thinking in
uploading that library and other game I maintain to Debian Games Team
because: 1) I don't have that much time as I used to have before, 2) I
still would like to maintain (or team maintaining) them.

I am sure I am not having regular internet connection in the next two
weeks. So, I'll give signs of live in two weeks.

I think you refer to a NMU, don't you?.

I am open to maintain this as team. But again, I am busy in these two weeks.
