Well you're looking for sponsor right? You should prepare request that
will make it easier for eventual sponsors to get know as much as possible 
about package here.

At least that's my opinion ;)

Why? If you're going to adopt it then please use procedure for this.

Hint: You should prepare package which will close RFA with changelog entry.

Procedure is mentioned at WNPP pages. And there is some bugreport against
setserial. Wishlist with updated translation, but it's still bugreport ;)

So the correct way of adopting would be to prepare new revision of package
with fixed bug and changelog entry which will close RFA.
