The reason why Debian Junior is interested in abiword is because it is
in one of our metapackages: junior-writing. Since abiword was up for
adoption I thought you were going to leave it to its fate.

Perhaps it is better to not put Debian Jr as maintainers, since the team
so far is small and would rather like to focus on building the pure blend.

We will however help out if we can with packaging, packaging review,
and uploads.
