If I'm not mistaken, this should go to the Release Team [0].

- One of you becomes the maintainer and gets sponsored by a DD (you need to 
find a DD willing to do that, of course), commiting to maintain the package as 
any other maintainer does.
- You find a Debian Developer who's interested in maintaining the package.
- You pay a DD to do the job, which includes maintaining the package for as 
long as you want to keep it alive.
