I think the best way should be to contact the submitter of the ITP and in
case of no answer try after a week or so.. having an ITP doesn't buond
anyone to a timelimit. See the ITP for sks as an example.. we notified
everyone that we are working on the packaging but since part of the
compiler/build-deps are not in sid yet we simply can't upload it.
