I can review your package but you need to find someone else to get it
into Debian.

I like the idea that members of the team, or everybody who'd like to
contribute to it, state on the wiki on what they are focussing at the
moment. I would write a few lines on that page myself.

On the other hand you need a lot of self-motivation and endurance, if
you want to see a particular game or piece of software included in
Debian. It's not unusual that you have to wait for months until someone
sponsors a package, especially when it's your first one. From a
psychological point of view I'm quite sure you will enjoy packaging much
more, if you strongly believe yourself that it's not a waste of time and
don't assume that others think it is.

The truth is, receiving no replies on lists or waiting for months for a
sponsor is an internal Debian human resources test to filter out all
those whose enthusiasm isn't strong enough. ;-)
