Do you mean something like:
Anyone can adopt an orphaned package. Just put some work into it
and send a bug to sponsorship-requests.
I did, but my package has not been yet sponsored:
somehow `my' package has been already adopted, but it is still
orphaned: something marking this kind of temporary situation should
exist, and you be good for Debian and the adopter.
You should use the existing wnpp bug report #525921 to state your
intention to adopt instead of creating a new one. Please add a note to
#525921 that you are intending to adopt the package, retitle it from O:
to ITA: as described here  and you can also set your self
as the owner of the bug report as well if you like.
You should also add [ITA] to the subject line of your RFS bug report as
well, as described here .
I will for the next intend.
For this one, is there a way to add [ITA] ?
Thanks in advance,
Hopefully you will find a sponsor soon.
