Hint: In Debian Med an Debian Science we are maintaining such software
as prospective packages in the tasks files.  There are also a few in
Debian Edu (see for instance mathematics task [1]).  It might perhaps
attract people looking at the tasks pages to grab some workload and so
it is a bit more visible on what project you are working.  Moving
existing WNPP bug info to the tasks files is a matter of copy-n-paste.
If somebody would like to do this and has no idea how, feel free to ask

Further hint: In Debian Med and Debian Science we tend to do more and
more group maintenance for relevant packages.  I would like to suggest
to establish a packaging team for those packages which are definitely
related to education and not yet maintained by a team.  From my
experience this really helps enhancing the quality of those packages and
by dragging currently single maintainers into a Debian Edu packaging
team you might get more focus on Debian Edu amongst the Debian

Kind regards
