In principle I could sponsor the package however I think you should
follow the advise given at


and use the Debian GIS developers list as maintainer and put yourself as
Uploader.  I'm not sure about Debian GIS upload policy but in Debian Med
we usually use

   DM-Upload-Allowed: yes

to enable DMs uploading packages.  (If you seriousely consider working on
these packages long term which is what I understand from your mails you
should definitely apply for becomming a DM / DD.)

Moreover I would like you to inject your packaging into Debian GIS SVN
and set Vcs fields accordingly.

BTW, lintian reveals some "Information" messages if started in nitpicking

   lintian -i -I *.deb *.dsc

Perhaps you might consider fixing these as well.

Kind regards and thanks for working on these packages
