As I understand it, upstream is uncooperative, and others have
already hinted at distributions@freedesktop, which I second. Someone
has also mentioned vcs-pkg, which is why I'd like to take the
opportunity to clarify its goal:

Without doubt, upstream should be the place where cross-distro
integration happens. However, if upstream is not interested, then
the idea of vcs-pkg is to have a repo used by all distros, which is
suitable for everyone. It doesn't matter where this repo will be
hosted, but I think in the long run, vcs-pkg.org or maybe
distrodev.org should have storage for those. vcs-pkg.org is on
alioth, but non-Debian people might not like being -guests.
