I have replied to this mail weeks ago. He should finish the package and
looking to a sponsor on debian-mentors@. And then takeover the package. I
have not enough time to be a sponsor for him. But Anibal also wrote he will
first finish another package before looking for an uploader.
Anibal: If you haven't got my email, sorry. Please look for an uploader an
take the package.
