Notifying an *external* person about the intention to upload the package
for Debian is not hijacking. Especially since there was no ITP.
A short time before I uploaded I noticed the package in the NEW queue so
dropped my action on it. It's not like I'm missing things to do, so I'll
leave it to you to maintain the package.
A few comments:
- Don't forget to close the ITP with a message to nnn-done@ once the
package is accepted.
- Moving the Python code to /usr/share is incorrect, it should be in
/usr/lib for FHS since Python has host dependent byte code. Check and
read the Debian Python package policy.
