Yes, we did. Do you want to add yourself as Uploader for this package?

I think we are in a quite good shape. Regarding pilon itself I had some
trouble with Pilon in the first place since Scala is in a bad shape
inside Debian (there is a recent discussion on debian-java list). May
be if you have some background with Scala and Java and can help there.
We have definitely some need of people with some skills in Java and some
open packaging tasks. It would be great if you could join that effort.
To get started in the team it would be good to register on
salsa.debian.org and apply for Debian Med team membership.

As far as I know becoming an active DD from emeritus status should not
be that hard.
Thanks a lot for your interest and welcome in the team
