I could update the package and (co-)maintain it, if this is OK for the
current maintainer, whose latest upload was 447 days ago[1]. Latest
recorded activity seems to be July 2008.

I have write access to the pkg-galago repository, where the package is
maintained, which makes a possible takeover easier.

The problem is that po/en_US.po has unclear licensing terms by refering to
the license of a package which is not available anymore. I have contacted
one of the upstream developers about it and I am awaiting his response.
