RFS: ketchup (updated package, adopting, 3rd try)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 0.9.8+hg5533f6de130c-3
of the orphaned package "ketchup" which I want to adopt.

It builds these binary packages:
ketchup    - update utility for linux-kernel sources

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 379121, 407512, 487277, 568572, 615371, 616854

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/k/ketchup
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/k/ketchup/ketchup_0.9.8+hg5533f6de130c-3.dsc

An excerpt from debian/changelog:

  * Adopt the package (Closes: #568572) - Thanks for your work Baruch Even!
  * Convert package to the 3.0 (quilt) source format.
  * Minimize dh rules and use dh_python2 instead of python-central.
    (Closes: #616854)
  * debian/control:
    - Use Homepage field. (Closes: #615371)
    - Add Vcs-* fields.
  * Add several patches to debian/patches/*:
    - Fix url to -rt tree (Closes: #487277)
    - Consider kernel_url override in all pre-defined trees. (Closes: #407512)
    - Check if the right gpg key is available before starting downloads.
      (Closes: #379121)
    - Stop if wget is terminated by a signal.
    - Add support for longterm kernel versions.
    - New 2.6-lt tree which chooses only updates that belong to the local used
      longterm/release tree.

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me. As I am DM, adding 
DM-Upload-Allowed to debian/control would be possible.

Kind regards
 Johann Felix Soden
