RFS libgpiv , gpivtools and gpiv

I am looking for a sponsor for the packages libgpiv, gpiv and
gpivtools I recently uploaded to the debian-mentors repository. The packages are
linda and lintian error free. Please, can some DD have a look at it? As the 
packages are mainly interesting for scientific and
engineering purposes, the audience is quite limited. But nevertheless I think 
it might help users a lot if this software would be included in Debian. 
Building from source seems to be complicated for many users as the packages depend 
on quite a few libraries. Though I am the developer of the software as well, 
the packaging has been kept separated from the upstream source packages 
available at http://gpiv.sourceforge.net

The description for the libgpiv package is:
Description: Library for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
 This library contains functions for evaluating images from a fluid flow
 by means of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), resulting into a velocity
 field of the fluid flow. It includes the core functions for
interrogation, data validation, post-processing, input/output and memory

for the gpivtools package:
Description: Command line programs for Particle Image Velocimetry
 A collection of programs for recording and interrogating images that
 are generated during a Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
 experiment. This is a technique to obtain the velocity field of a
 fluid flow quantitatively and is performed by tracking tracer
 particles that have been seeded to a fluid. The technique is also
 applied for observing deformations at surfaces of (solid) bodies. The
 package contains:
 an image recording program that uses an IEEE1394 (Firewire)
 IIDC-compliant camera and a program for triggering the camera with a
 light source (mostly a double cavity Nd-YAG laser). Trigger pulses
 are sent over the parallel port of the computer using RealTimeLinux
 and RTAI.
 an image processing program for typical filtering and manipulation
 routines that may be convenient for PIV.
 an image interrogation program resulting into estimators of particle
 image displacements.
 validation programs to test on outliers, peak-locking effect and
 velocity gradients.
 post-processing programs for data manipulation (flipping, rotation
 etc), spatial and time scaling, calculation of spatial averages and
 derivatived quantities from the PIV data, like vorticity and strain.
 miscelaneous programs and scripts to perform image format conversion,
 batch-processing, pipeline processing (image evaluation, validation and
 post-processing at once), calculation of time averages from a series
 of PIV data sets, data-visualization and data-manipulation.

and for the gpiv package:
Description: Graphic Interface program for Particle Image Velocimetry
 Gpiv is a graphic program using the the GTK/GNOME libraries for
 Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The program gives a quick overview
 of the parameter settings of the processes and allows to change them
 easely, running the processes, individually or in a chain,
 visualizes and displays the results. The processes that may be
 invoked by Gpiv are:
 Image recording and triggering of a camera with light sources.
 Image evaluation or interrogation, resulting into estimators of
 image displacements.
 Data validation to test on outliers, peak-locking effect and
 velocity gradients over the interrogation area's.
 Data post-processing: data manipulation,spatial and time scaling to
 obtain a velocity field from the PIV data, calculation of spatial
 averages, vorticity and strain.

I am looking forward that these packages will be included in the
Debian distribution. So please, let somebody sponsor me.
