I've taken a look at your packaging at agree it looks good. I noted a
couple of things that I've picked up since I started packaging...

debian/rules
  - no need to define a .PHONY target
  - build flags import and set isn't required as dh9 sets all the
required build_flags

debian/control
  - section can be removed from libiniparser0 binary package

debian/watch (Attached)
  - Look at GitHub tags directly (not via deprecated github redir)
  - Add dversionmangle to remove date/git suffix

debian/changelog
  - Most new packages use a single entry in the changelog, for the
initial packaging and closing of ITP bug

I do have a sponsor who I work with, for several packages but I can't
comment on his current workload etc. It may be worth preparing the
source and uploading to mentors.debian.org, filing an RFS bug and see if
anyone is interested.

I would be reluctant to take over the package entirely as I'm not really
familiar with library packaging (other than perl modules).
