I had made an RFS in 2007[0] but couldn't find a sponsor that easily,
when I also realise that the project wasn't really maintained upstream
(the author never answered my several email).

I do not have any problem with you taking over the package.
I have changed the owner of the ITP.

My Debian sources are available from my svn repository[1]: 

	svn co svn://svn.kirya.net/gconf-cleaner/trunk gconf-cleaner

However, I doubt gconf-cleaner is ready to be uploaded to Debian. It
still has some problems with current GNOME packages (like evolution
which does not install structure for all the keys used etc.). 
I am not sure what was done in the meantime, maybe these packages were
fixed... Not tested though.

Moreover, the last real commits were made in 2007! The 2 commits of 2008
were a translation added and a gcc warning issue.
Unmaintained software has little chance to get uploaded to Debian, or
maybe you have the skills to take the project over (or good
relationships with the upstream maintainer!)
