Maintaining zookeeper in Debian

Hi Team

Some of you may have been following the discussion around zookeeper and
its future in Debian on debian-devel.

Clint Byrum (cc'ed) and myself discussed this last week and we would
like to step up to help maintain this package in Debian.

There are a couple of reasons for this:
1) zookeeper is a essential part of ensemble (see [0] and [1]) so having
a well maintained package in Debian and Ubuntu is key to the success of
this project.
2) zookeeper is part of the Hadoop Big-Data suite which is important for
the Ubuntu Server Team strategically.

The package is currently maintained by Debian Java Maintainers; we
propose that this remains as is and that Clint and I pickup the
outstanding bugs against this package for resolution in the immediate

Neither Clint or I are Debian Developers so we will need help in the
form of sponsorship to ensure that this package continues to be actively
