Which you haven't CC'd now ...

I totally understand your frustration, and I'm sorry that Debian at
large can be quite bad at dealing with requests like this.

But mailing debian-devel, which is a high-level meta discussion list
around Debian development in general, read by thousands of people
(and not a community of a handful people working on this or a couple
of packages) and cc'ing unrelated people won't help either ...

- always keep the bug in the loop
- contact the MIA team, if you think the maintainers are inactive
- prepare an NMU and ask for sponsorship on debian-mentors

(As a personal note, I'm very appreciative about your great work in
Maemo, and I'm very happy to see something from Maemo coming back to
Debian, even if it's frustrating for your right now.)
