This address is for orphaned packages. You cannot NMU them, because
there is no maintainer. Instead, you can do a QA upload, which is a bit
like a NMU, but then without NMU version numbering, without asking
permission, etc. Use lintian to catch the most common issues in doing an
QA upload vs an NMU.
Anyway, your AM knows all about it, and could tell you more.
Considering the package's state, and the fact that's one major upstream
version behind (#259548), and that it has very few users according to
popcon, I wonder whether we're not better off just removing the package,
