Mhm, ok bad, I also wrote him a mail if he is still 
interested in maintaining tilda but no answer yet.
Regarding that you both didn't get an answer I think it is 
fair to let Davide proceed.

I think the fairest thing is to upload the package and to 
give Zak the opportunity to join as a Co-maintainer later. I 
hope this is fair for both.
Davide, I looked at your updated package, I am not yet 
gratified with the copyright document. Here my proposal for 
what it should look like:

This package was first debianized by David Moreno Garza <damog@debian.org> on
Sat,  8 Oct 2005 15:39:29 -0500.

The current Debian maintainer is Davide Truffa <davide@catoblepa.org>

It was downloaded from: http://tilda.sourceforge.net/

Upstream Authors: Tristan Sloughter <sloutri@iit.edu>
                  Ira Snyder <tilda@irasnyder.com>
