I don't think that this is handled clearly in the policy. I personally
would allow the original ITP submitter 1-2 weeks to react. If you don't
get any reply just change the owner to yourself and upload it. You could
already start to look for a sponsor (RFS to this mailing list).
Usually I'm pretty careful with package cleptomania. But there are so many
ITPs that are long dead and block other people's attempt to introduce the
package to Debian.
