Which maintainer was this?  A sponsored MU is always better than an NMU,
so I'd be happy to sponsor an upload if needed.

Particularly since NMUs will need to follow shortly, any information
that potential NMUers have available to them about the order in which
packages need to be uploaded is likely to save some duplicated effort;
so if you have time to prepare something along these lines, I'm sure it
would be appreciated.
