They did no such thing.  As the previous maintainer, I set the
maintainer to Debian QA, which is the *right and proper thing to do*
until the new person actually makes an opload.  I am not presently
maintaining the package, and neither are you.  QA is the right place for
it to be.

Did you even read the changelog at all?

See, *I* orphaned it.  That is the latest release.  Nobody on the QA
team has done a thing with the package.

(BTW, I believe liw may be preparing an upload as well.)

What QA package?

Debian packages cannot be "reverted".  They can only be superceded.
