I (as the maintainer of request-tracker packages) would definitely
support the hijack of the libhtml-mason-perl package. In general,
newer packages and keeping up-to-date with HTML::Mason releases make
my life easier. I've had quite a few problems with the quality of the
libhtml-mason-perl packaging that I've had to work around due to the
absence of the maintainer. I've considered a hijack myself before now
but I just don't have the time.

Thanks for volunteering to take up this effort. I would recommend
considering joining the debian-perl group and possibly doing the
uploads of libhtml-mason-perl through that project as it would be
easier to find sponsors when needed.
