Who's the maintainer of the Debian version?  Have you approached them  
about adopting it?  Debian has an MIA procedure for developers who  
are neglecting packages, and you can forcibly take them once that  
procedure has been gone through.  If you're not a Debian Developer,  
you can still become a maintainer, you'll just need a real Debian  
Developer (e.g. me) to sponsor you and perform uploads on your behalf.
