Call for volunteers for Bugzilla (was: Re: Status of Bugzilla v3.0 for Debian)

I've been maintaining Bugzilla since sarge is released. It's a lot of
work when you're alone on such a volatile piece of software, moreover
when upstream releases oftenly new major versions.
It used to work as I had enough freetime to deal with it, but I must
admit I can't keep bugzilla in a good shape by my own now. Mostly because
my "debian" time is used for other packages.
I was intending to orphan bugzilla but decided to open the
maintenance to others, if that's possible. If not, I guess I'll have to
orphan it for real.
Hence, I'm sending this call for volunteers. If you like to join me and
help me packaging bugzilla 3 for debian, you're welcome.
The IRC chan #debian-webapps is there for coordination, the list
email@example.com can be used too.
Bugzilla sources are handeld in Alioth's svn repo:
The package is already officially maintained by the Debian Webapps Team
(I put myself as an uploader in my last upload).
I suppose one or two volunteers would be enough to deal correctly with
So if you're interested feel free to join. Note that debian/bugzilla
users are also welcome to join the IRC chan, that can be helpful for
testing upcoming packages.
