As I understand it, the original maintainer of the package isn't very active anymore (if at all), so I'm not sure that's going to be an option.  The bug I opened for the new version has been sitting for over a month assigned to the current maintainer and there's been no response.  Is there a policy on transferring ownership of an abandoned package?
