As John mentioned, it was him who did the assignation to the QA team, as
is proper procedure when orphaning.
What was not proper procedure was that I didn't re-title the bug to
indicate that I wanted to adopt the package. I only sent mail (on July
26, to debian-devel, two days before your ITA) that I intended to do so.
Nor did I follow the WNPP bug and didn't realize someone else wanted the
package. I don't read -mentor (nor -devel anymore), either. My
I have just uploaded a new version (2.4.7-3). It indicates that I'm the
new maintainer and also fixes bug (#258822, manual page formatting
error). I would have uploaded earlier, but I was busy and wanted to fix
the bug before I uploaded, so as not to upload only to change
If you wish to take over maintenance for the package, I'll be happy to
give it to you and sponsor uploads (though I may be slow with that,
depending on work pressures). It would probably be best to wait for a
while before a new version is uploaded, to avoid putting unnecessary
pressure on the buildds right now, they seem to be overloaded. I sent
the web2png.xml patch to ESR, who said he'd be making a new release
soonish (possibly with no other changes, though), and waiting for that,
at least, would be good.
