At NLnet Labs we prefer these open source packages are better maintained
by someone from within the (Debian) community.  It allows non-affiliated
persons to be more in-tune with the packaging method of the distribution
and are more free to make own choices.  We don't advocate a particular

Having said that, we have a natural interest that the maintenance
does not get orphaned.  I'm sure that one of us, on a personal
basis (i.e. outside of our organization control) would want to
volunteer, but only if there are really no other candidates and
for a transitional period.  Our organization allows for us to do
these kind of things, without NLnet Labs having any responsibility
