You probably mailed at the time Klee Diennes, the previous new maintainer 
officer was away and/or having email problems.  Martin Schulze (aka Joey) took 
it over now, and he is quite fast at taking care of new maintainers.  Another 
possibility is that your message never got through, because being the debian 
keyring  maintainer, I get all new-maintainer messages too, and I don't 
remember seeing yours. Please repost your message to new-maintainer.  

Btw, you really should recompile your package with libc6.
