Hi Mario,

I negotiated with the old maintainer via email to take over this package last 
I have a fix version of the old package pending upload. (I'm still being 
processed for NM, hence the delay in uploading).

I do not see that stella is orphaned on the wnpp bug page?

How can you adopt a package that is not orphaned without agreement of the 
current maintainer?
