Have you tried contacting the Debian GNOME team [1] (which maintains
similar packages [2]) to see if anyone might be interested in your
package? It's generally a lot easier to find willing sponsors and get
your package reviewed if you maintain your package in a team.

Regards,
Vincent

I wouldn't mind having this in pkg-gnome. That way you could get somebody from
the team to sponsor uploads, plus you could help with the other C++ bindings ;)
But this is up to you, you can keep the package in collab-maint. BTW if you
haven't found a sponsor yet I'll be happy to take a look at it. Just let me know.

Cheers,
Emilio

thanks for the offer. I really like the idea maintaining this package in a team. I
read your website[1] and it seems you do all your packaging with subversion. I
have no experience with svn as I work with git mostly. Would you mind reviewing my
package even if it's not converted to svn yet?
BTW: I have no experience with other C++ bindings and I'm actually more interested
to get gimagereader[2] into Debian but I'd be happy to look at other C++ bindings
as well (if time permits).

Best,
Philip
