Just throwing the code out there and sitting back waiting for developers
to appear is not a good strategy.  Sourceforge is littered with projects
waiting for those phantom helpers to appear.

It would be better to hire a consultant to make the changes you want (full
disclosure: I do this sort of thing) and when it has been ported over to
Debian, possibly open sourcing the results -- if it is something you see
people needing.  When there is a finished or at least usable program,
people are more likely to want to tweak it, send patches etc.
