if David has really turned inactive, I’d say it is reasonable to upload
your package to hackage. Hackage does not have Debian’s sense of strong
ownership, it seems. And I think that it is ok for a package called
"debian" to be maintained by a member of the Debian Haskell Group.

Of course, it would be better if all interested parties can successful
collaborate on one code base, and I think when David comes back, this
will be possible.
