For the formal MIA tracking, you can contact mia@qa.debian.org . It is
detailed here:
They will (try to) followup with the maintainer and eventually orphan
the packages.

Until that time, you can of course fix the package in the form of NMU's.
I see that that is badly needed. I don't use shc myself, ideally you
find a sponsor that does. Maybe Roland Stigge, who has reported a few
bugs against the package, is interested?

Good luck and thanks for the effort!
