At least I'm not keen on it. I'm rather working on getting rid of all
my remaining Wheezy installations (at least 5 or so) and upgrade them,
preferably twice in a row. ;-)

Anyways: Wheezy was the first Debian release where Zsh was
team-maintained and hence it should be not a too ugly package to
update. If you have questions on the background of some aspects, feel
free to ask.

I can't really talk for all team members, but I don't expect much of a
different response from most of them given their current busyness on
other topics.

So feel free to go ahead.

I do not demand to test the package, but I offer to do so. I actually
feel a little bit obliged towards the LTS team to do at least that.

So feel free to contact me (or the pkg-zsh-devel list) once a package
is available for testing.

Should be generally fine. But if possible use only the mailing list
for that: All Uploaders are subscribed AFAIK and some more people who
might be able to help (Daniel Shahaf comes to my mind :-) are
subscribed, too.
