adoption of irssi debian package

Hi, I would like to adopt the irssi debian package you currently maintain. I actually use this software and find it very useful on a public IRC channel.

I am also sending this e-mail to the debian-mentors list so I can maybe get a bit more help. By the way, list reader, is this the correct procedure?

As far as I remember, the first thing I have to do is to send a message to that bug (211995) with a subject: ITA: irssi -- IRC file distribution bot

Is that correct?

If you agree, I can send you the patch to the updated package source when I'm done, so you can check my changes. Then, if you approve so, could you help me find a sponsor?

Thank you,
