I opened a bug against gscan2pdf indicating that there is a new upstream
available (#440204). If I might make a suggestion, why not RFS a NMU
0.9.16-0.1 that closes #440204 as well as any other open bugs that
are fixed in 0.9.16. That way there's no issue of hijacking but you can
get your work updated pending resolution of Mr. Goerzen's status. If he
really is MIA then there's the much bigger issue of the 45 other
packages he maintains which would be orphaned...
