How do you track that down?

No quick way to get that information from here.
Picking three random ITPs:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=351594 (ITP: chocolate-doom)
Bug reports points to http://debian.halfcoded.net/ . Packages are still 
there. Last modified: Dec 2007.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=455759 (ITP: crystal)
Points to debian-mentors, but only at the end of the report.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=457230 (ITP: glest-indians)
No information about a package.
