libdevice-serialport-perl broken

Hello!  I'm trying to get some traction on this issue.  Nothing has 
moved on either debian-mentors nor debian-perl.  Is there anyone that 
can help me get libdevice-serialport-perl back on its feet, or point me 
in the right direction?

Thanks in advance,

Hello!  This is a continuation of a thread started on d-mentors[1].  I'm 
still waiting to get this resolved, as it seems Mike Mattice is busy.  
Please, what is needed to get my[2] (or Zak's[3]) NMU uploaded?  This 
fixes a pretty major regression in the package (even acknowledged below 
by Mike).  It would close the following bugs:

#359449, #352295, #295912, #390387, #328172, #324877

I (as the upstream) have verified that the resulting package builds and 
operates correctly.  I'm happy to cut an upstream 1.003 release if it'll 
help clean any of this up, too.  I just want to see a proper[4] version 
in Debian.

Can someone please sponsor this upload?  I'd prefer that my version be 
used (instead of Zak's) due to additional bug fixes and because then I'm 
listed as an uploader.  :)

Thanks in advance!
