Nothing. I first heard of this idea several months ago and nothing happened 

This idea is good but has some drawbacks:
- packaging lib and packaging games is sometwhat different
- users of SDL libs may not be only games (*)
- Since Game packaging members are focused on games, SDL libs packages 
  are more likely to become victim of bystander apathy [1]

Let's say folding SDL team is plan B. Let's see first if plan A (SDL team 
revival) is working.

That said, Debian games team members are also welcome to join SDL packaging 

All the best


(*) I will use SDL_perl, but it won't be for a game.
