There is an open RFP #605133 - you should become the owner of it
and retitle it to an ITP (see new-maint guide for details).
Further more, lintian clean is a bit optimistic, at least:
$ lintian -I -E --pedantic qapt_1.0.80-1_i386.changes
(You can get the full description of the tags by using lintian-info -t)

You are targeting 'unstable' or 'testing' normally.
It will migrate from 'unstable' later on to 'testing' if its ready.

Upstream should consider creating a static page with information
about qapt/muon you can link to… e.g. where can i find the vcs -
i haven't found it so far (but i am missing the obvious possibly).

Thumbs up for a symbol file, but they should include all symbols
otherwise they are not as useful as they could.

Not documented means it doesn't exist… ;)
(I haven't looked at muon at all)
With your contact to upstream, you might want to suggest them
to push some of the more general features from qapt to libapt to
benefit from it in all frontends (from my APT point of view).
