RFS: lesstif2 AND Questions about collab-maint

Hi mentors and mentees,

[Sorry for the long mail, there are several issues/questions.]

I am looking for a thourough check of my packaging and preferably a
sponsor for the new version 1:0.95.2-1 of my package "lesstif2" [0].
This new upstream version is only the incorporation of a lot of patches
already incorporated in the current version of lesstif2 in Debian.

Lesstif2 has been moved to collab-maint [1], because the original
maintainer, Sam Hocevar, agreed that I could co-maintain lesstif2 with
him. However, Sam Hocevar, hasn't responded to my last e-mails about
checking the packaging and uploading. He previously suggested mailing
the other collab-maint people in parallel, so that they could sponsor. I
tried the collab-maint-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org email address, but
that doesn't exist anymore. Now I am looking for the best way to ask for
a check of the packaging. Would anybody know the way to reach the
collab-maint people? Or is this list the most appropriate place anyway?
In the latter case, do I understand correctly that mentors still want an
upload to mentors.d.n? Just in case for the latter, I build the package
and uploaded to m.d.n [2]. I would appreciate comments (changelog at the
bottom of this mail [3]).

lesstif2 builds these binary packages:
lesstif-bin - user binaries for LessTif
lesstif-doc - documentation for LessTif
lesstif2   - OSF/Motif 2.1 implementation released under LGPL
lesstif2-dbg - lesstif2 debugging files
lesstif2-dev - development library and header files for LessTif 2.1

The upload would fix this bug: 409093

The package is NOT completely lintian free (39 times the next warning):
W: lesstif-doc: manpage-has-errors-from-man
usr/share/man/man3/<man>.3.gz  around line <num>: table wider than line
To solve this I need to re-arrange a lot of tables. Does anybody know a
nice way to order them? Currently it is like:
       Name                      Class                     Type
Default   Access

       XtNx                      XtCPosition               Position
My suggestion would be something like (is this readable?):
       Name                      Class                     Type
       XtNx                      XtCPosition               Position

With kind regards
