Some remarks :
- the sponsor does not want the bug reports in his mail box, those should
  go to the maintainer ... :)
- taking over the maintainership does not request the preceding maintainer
  to do anything, you just have to upload a package with a modified
  Maintainer field. No need to ask debian-qa or the sponsor (of course you
  must have your account on master for that).
- debian-qa is a a mailing-list where you could subscribe to get the bug
  reports. Each subscriber is part of the Debian QA Group and can work on
  packages owned by debian-qa ... the list is just a matter of
  coordinating the work on the orphaned packages and on general 
  quality issues.

Oups, corrected.
