Thanks, as I have mentioned a couple times to both the maintainer and
the co-maintainer, I would be happy to give syslog-ng the attention it
deserves, so when orphan time comes, let me know so I can do some work
on it. So that I might have an idea for planning my work-load, what
time frame are you talking about?

No, it is not important now for sarge, although I would have preferred
to get the more stable version into sarge before the freeze. I have
performed a NMU on syslog-ng to fix a security bug already. I sent
this message because I did not want to prematurely hijack. It is my
understanding that the process is to attempt to contact the maintainer
a couple times, then if no response, contact debian-devel to see if
anyone else knows. This is why I am here.

No problem, I noticed because I make heavy use of syslog-ng and there
are many bugs that I think can be easily fixed.
