Thanks for the reply.

I was afraid that you lost interests in your emacs* packages.  If
you are active well in maintaining, I don't intend to take over
your packages.  Anyway, I'm in PTS and debian-emacsen list to help.

BTW, I feel Emacs 22.0.94 (pretest version of 22.1) reaches a
quality for Debian release.  So, please consider that Debian
emacs22 package will be uploaded soon even though it is not yet an
upstream official release at the moment.
