Not only I can be a sponsor but I will be able to help with the script
part of the package if you need.
However since this package is part of the core of Debian, I prefer your
taking over to be announced first in debian-devel (and thats why I am
sending my reply to debian-devel too).
Let me remind to the readers of debian-devel that currently there are
two console packages in Debian -- kbd and console-tools. Console-tools
has no upstream maintainer and because of this the Debian maintainer of
console-tools has aready tagged several bugs as non-fix. The console
utilities of the installer are entirely based on kbd and not on
console-tools. Because of this kbd needs to be properly maintained.
I requested adopter for this package because it was never my intention
to maintain "kbd". The maintainer of "kbd" is the group "Console
utilities maintainers" and when this group reduced to only one member
(me) I had to take over.
