I'm happy to help too. I use wicd all the time so want to see it in
good shape. I can help with testing, packaging advice, and as backup sponsor.

If it's just a tool you use locally to update your sources/repo then
it's not a build-dependency, so just use it, but no need to change
anything in the packaging. Possibly worth noting in a
debian/README.source on how you do updates/new releases (especially
for anyone else that takes over in future or has to update/build it
locally for other reasons)
