  A good start :)

  Not good enough if you wish to become a Debian Developer yourself,
 but if you will commit to looking after the packages and can live with
 having to make sponsored uploads only it shouldn't be a problem.

  It's unfortunate that the upstream author isn't responsive, as this
 can be very useful when making packages, and handling bug reports

  I'm a bit disappointed that the package is split into two version,
 it would be nice if there could be a way of only having one which
 would detect which kind of X11 windowing system you were running
 and load the correct code.

  Still it's a pretty application, pretty unique as far as I can
 see and very cute.

  I will sponsor it, give me a few days to look over it properly
 and if there are problems I'll mail you privately.

  Have you mailed the maintainer to inform him/her?
