Thanks for your energy and attention. I want to unblock you.
Based on what has been said so far, and a quick review of the list
archives and BTS:
Please hijack (salvage) the package. I will sponsor your upload.
If you are able to persuade the alioth admins to grant you membership
of the team on alioth, then of course, please do so. If not, put
yourself in the Maintainer field, and we can sort the alioth group out
When you have prepared your upload please contact me by private email,
 or post a reference your package here for review, if you prefer.
Please also CC a copy of your sponsorship request to
l...@packages.debian.org and/or pkg-lirc-maint, so that anyone on that
list can comment.
To email@example.com: if anyone is reading this and objects to Gianfranco
becoming a maintainer of this package, please step forward ASAP, and
in any case reply within the next 7 days to both me and to -devel.
 That is, prepare a new upload, of the new upstream version,
intended for stretch, fixing as many of the outstanding bugs as you
can, and adding yourself to Uploaders.
 If you are using a git-based workflow, please send me a reference
to your git branch, including the specific commit hash, as well as a
reference to your source package. (I will use dgit to do the upload
if I can.)
Ian Jackson <ijack...@chiark.greenend.org.uk> These opinions are my own.
If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
