It only means that it's not that simple. Please talk to Ondrej to see
what needs to be done, and how you can help.

Actually, this goes for all dispora-related uploads. They really require
some coordination. Please try to give us a global view of what's
required to get it done.

And note that according to
http://lists.debian.org/debian-ruby/2011/07/msg00025.html, the priority
is still to get the transition done, i.e get all current packages
transitioned, not add new ones. This still applies for me:
  From now on, I will only sponsor new packages (not already in Debian)
  if the requester has done some of the "collective" tasks listed on
  that page. I don't think that it's a too hard policy: handling new
  upstream releases is generally quite easy, for example.

Also note that transitioning packages and doing other "collective
shores" is a great way to learn. You can find TODO lists on
and http://pkg-ruby-extras.alioth.debian.org/wheezy/details.html
