If you care about the package or even just need it to be fixed, do
what I did with linux-atm:
* ask the maintainer if he needs help
* ask again
* warn that you will NMU
* NMU to DELAYED fixing the most urgent and/or simpler bugs
* keep doing uploads to fix other bugs
* eventually hijack the package, if you want

(Somewhat related: I am still looking for help with ppp, I have an
updated package ready but the BTS page scares me...)
