Well, I hope also.

Debian Science Team members are usually very helpful if somebody

Some packages can live many years without maintainer.
But ParaView is too large and complex to use this opportunity.
If RC-bugs will not be resolved on time - any package is being
removed from the testing, and later - does not go to release.
