No, really, it won't work like that. He needs a DD to be willing to
sponsor him first.

Ok, he didn't ITP Agnubis, did he? Just go ahead, package it well,
upload it. Everyone's happy :-)

I know, been there, done that. It was fun for me, fullfilling. Probably
because it was something I wanted to do. Don't push him into NM.

Condider that his ITP has been there for two months. He's either not
that motivated or simply busy. And NM is much more time consuming than
closing an ITP. Offer your help, whatever help you are willing or able
to give. 

If he is too busy to package whatever was that depended so heavily on
Agnubis, offer to retitle the bug to a RFP. 

But all this discussion is kind of useless until he tells us what's on
his mind first ;-)
