The maintainer stated that he's not using Debian anymore, and thus
doesn't want to bother orphaning the package.  Also he said that he is
ok with Ulises becoming the new maintainer.

Thus, THIS IS NOT A HIJACK.  This is an adoption without an O: bug,
which is actually quite a common practice when the old maintainer and
the new maintainer agree on this via IRC or some other medium.

There was no need to contact debian-devel about this.  I thought we
had already agreed on this.
