Apologies for the very delayed response.
I would be happy for the Perl team to take over libheimdal-kadm5-perl. I
don't remember why I didn't package that under the Perl team in the first
place. https://git.eyrie.org/git/kerberos/heimdal-kadm5.git has the
Debian packaging in the debian branch if you want to import the Git
For the rest, I'm either upstream or (in the case of libnews-article-perl)
practically upstream given that the package is orphaned, and I'm probably
nearly the only user. I think it makes sense for me to continue to
maintain those packages myself at least for now, since they're fairly
niche packages and I have a lot of insight into how they're used and when
they may no longer be useful.
