taking over a neglected RC-buggy package

Hello QA Team,

	Background: shc package currently [1] in the archive has RC-issues [2], which 
have been resolved by a non-DD NMU [3]. No packages depend on shc package. 
Sponsors welcome. As you can see the last upload happend back in 21 Oct 2004. 
The RC has been filed 23 Oct 2005 with no reaction from the maintainer ever 

	Dilemma: There is no any chance for a comaintenance either, since the 
maintainer has been MIA for more that a year now and these RC-bugs are left 
unaddressed. Also seems he will not file a RFH, FRA, or O or ask for 
comaintenance in a reasonable timeframe.

	Advice: I've been told to consult the QA team for advice and for formal MIA 
tracking. If the package is to be left in the cold, I'm ready to take it over 
adding myself to Uploaders:, while the original Maintainer: will remain as it 
is. Well, I'm still in the NM queue, so I'll need a sponsor also.
