You could contact the MIA (missing in action) team and ask for help.
Luckily for you, we've just now seen your mail here and we'll try to
contact Kęstutis some time soon.

Regarding your package, please open a bug report requesting the update
to the current version and send mia@qa.debian.org a bug number or even
CC them all the time. If there's no response in some time, we'd have to
consider an NMU or something.
