Bug#935485: Looking for help to adopt recently removed package, kcollectd

Hello everyone,

I've been following a bit of a breadcrumb trail, and I hope I'm in the right
place now. kcollectd, a tool for viewing log information, has recently been
removed from unstable because it lacked a Qt 5 port [1]. I have ported that
package and I've taken over the upstream (which has been dead for years) [2].
I'm offering to maintain the Debian package, but I have received very little
response to my ITA RFS bug [3]. Should I refile this as an ITP bug, since the
package has, in fact, already been removed?

I spoke with Scott Kitterman, who requested the removal, and he said
knows of no other reason the package should be removed. The updated
packaging fixes several outstanding bugs, and makes the Debian lintian
report much cleaner (one is, I believe, a false positive, and the other
is due to lack of package tests which aren't really relevant to this kind of
UI software).

Is anyone here willing to sponsor this package, offer any criticism of
the package, or direct me to a place where I might get such help?

Thank you,
Antonio Russo
