Yes. It's orphaned. If you really care about the package, please adopt it. 
Thanks.

Debian is a distribution which is organised in a way that there are packages 
and package maintainers. *Pause*
Sometimes the latter give up, so these packages are orphaned, Orphaned 
packages which are not picked up by new maintainers IMHO shouldn't be part of 
a Debian release.
