Care to file a bug? :)

Quoting http://www.debian.org/devel/join:

   If you are interested in maintaining packages, then you should look
   at our Work-Needing and Prospective Packages list to see what
   packages need maintainers. Taking over someone else's package is
   the best way to start out as a developer as you can learn from what
   the previous maintainer has already done.
