Could you send to this bug report the changes requested of upstream, so that
we can help with this process, or at least have these documented here.

Perhaps someone else can take the packaging to get it going, and when you
are under less pressure and have more time can co-maintain or take it over?

Do not apply more stress than necessary. Myself, or one of the others here
would be happy to get the package into shape and get it uploaded to get
things started, then when you have more time you can begin to do either
co-maintainence, or take over the package.

This is Emanuele's last attempt, we haven't heard anything from him here, so
we can assume it is the latest. However, I imagine it needs to be updated to
a newer version, and perhaps integrate your changes that you sent to upstream.
