RFS: link-grammar

I need a sponsor to upload a new version of link-grammar. The packages
are at http://lingcog.iit.edu/~bloom/link-grammar/ 

The package is maintained in git at
http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/link-grammar.git;a=summary i.e.

I'd really like if someone could sponsor me on an ongoing basis until
they're comfortable enough to advocate for me as a Debian Maintainer. I
used to work with Anibal Monsalve Salazar, but he doesn't respond to my
emails anymore.

Description: Carnegie Mellon University's link grammar parser for English
 In Selator, D. and Temperly, D. "Parsing English with a Link Grammar"
 (1991), the authors defined a new formal grammatical system called a
 "link grammar". A sequence of words is in the language of a link
 grammar if there is a way to draw "links" between words in such a way
 that the local requirements of each word are satisfied, the links do
 not cross, and the words form a connected graph. The authors encoded
 English grammar into such a system, and wrote this program to parse
 English using this grammar.
 link-grammar can be used for linguistic parsing for information
 retrieval or extraction from natural language documents. It can also be
 used as a grammar checker.
