If the package is in Debian and orphaned: ITA
If the package is not in Debian (whether it ever was before or not): ITP.

In your case, I think your ITP should explain why the package should be
reintroduced because packages aren't removed without due cause and you
would need to show that not only have those issues been fixed but that
if similar issues arise, you are able and willing to fix those too.
