Looking for a sponsor for axel v1.0b-7 (ITA, repackage, bug fixes)


I am (still) looking for a long-term sponsor for "axel" (v1.0b-7).  I
have had an offer for help since my last request [1] over a month ago,
but haven't heard back in over two weeks.  the following changes [2]
have been made to the package:

[1] http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2007/11/msg00208.html
[2] http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/collab-maint/ext-maint/axel/unstable/?op=log

- Use debhelper for packaging
- Bump up Standards-Version to 3.7.3
- There are no changes outside the debian directory now (all patches are
  in debian/patches)
- Patch to make axel-kapt use x-terminal-emulator instead of a hardcoded
  terminal program
- Patch to fix lintian warnings on axel-kapt Desktop file (and make sure
  that it passes desktop-file-validate).
- Use simple kaptain pop-ups for the Help and Bug Report (earlier it
  would try to invoke kmail).
- Hermann J. Beckers was kind enough to update his earlier de.po file.
  I've included that in the package.
- All the lintian informational messages are also fixed.

That apart, v1.0b-4 has fixes for multiple important bugs.

Thanks to kmap, mario for comments earlier, further comments are welcome
:-).  I would be glad if someone can sponsor an upload.  The package can
be found on mentors.d.n [3]

PS: There hasn't been an upload since v1.0b-4, so please use a -v1.0b-3
option to dpkg-buildpackage for generating the changes file.
