I'm collecting a few hints and patches in BTS, as well as contacting 
reports for clarifications and information. I could upload
a new version with some fixes in the meantime. 
If you agree, I could upload a NMU quite soon to fix a few urgencies.

I'm quite confident to squash the remaining serious bugs in a few days,
but at least one point requires a precise choice from the proper
maintainer, i.e. adding or not debconf support to manage ldap/nis maps
or not. A partial solution is a better documentation for some 
obscure aspects of remote maps. 

If you are seriously interested in maintainership I could
set the new Maintainer field, else I would use the QA contact.

Eventually we could consider co-maint. I use autofs in NIS environment,
so I could work better on some aspects.

See the bugreport 279872 _you_ changed in ITA :)
