intend to hijack GnuPG

Hi Release Team,

I intend to hijack GnuPG[1], but as it builds an udeb and has priority
important, I ask if the Release Team allow it.
James seems to be MIA more than six months ago:

Various people can't reach him[2]. On the other hand, he seems to be
active on Ubuntu[3], he joined to Launchpad security this january at
least. Moritz Muehlenhoff noted[4] that it should be hijacked and get in
shape for Lenny. Thus I have created a preliminary package[5] which
fixes some important bugs and get v1.4.9 to the archive.
Does the Release Team allow this hijack, should I upload it as an NMU
instead or just leave it alone?
