Looks like you've even got two to choose from:

* #178165: ITP: openexr -- High dynamic-range image format for computer
Package: wnpp; Severity: wishlist; Reported by: Jay Bonci <jay@bonci.com>;
91 days old. 

* #178317: ITP: openexr -- A high dynamic-range image file format by ILM 
Package: wnpp; Severity: wishlist; Reported by: Andrew Lau
<netsnipe@debianplanet.org>; 90 days old. 

Have you contacted either (or both) of the people listed in these bug
reports to ask them what's going on?  That's probably a better way to find
out if there are problems in the packaging (although if there were problems,
the prospective packager should have contacted you about them).

About the only guaranteed way to expedite getting anything into Debian is to
make sure the licence is DFSG free and then either do it yourself (if you're
a DD) or make a contractual arrangement with a DD to package it and submit
it for inclusion.
