Also, if you're interested in maintaining packages of this sort in
general, you may want to consider joining the NVIDIA packaging team by
subscribing to the pkg-nvidia-devel mailing list on
lists.alioth.debian.org.  We're currently maintaining the CUDA packages as
well as the NVIDIA graphics drivers and libraries, and while I don't have
any time to work on NVIDIA packaging myself, I'm happy to do uploads for
others and some package review.  Other people on the team may also be
willing to help.
