Nobody, of course. If debian-qa is "maintainer", that means that the
package is orphaned and doesn't have a maintainer. It's just not buggy
or useless enough to delete it from the archive straight away.

If you expect someone to care for the package other than fixing RC bugs,
I think you're wrong. If someone from the QA team actually offers more
care, that's fine.
