I sent an RFA (request for adoption). In Debian terms that means I don't
have enought time available to do proper maintaining, but haven't given
up on the package yet (which would be orphaning). This is important
because holding on to a package while not maintaining it proper will
hurt users. But I still want to see this package make it into sarge in
good shape and I will do my best for that.

This means that a anyone is now free to take over maintainership of the
package. If you are not a Debian Developer it could be done through
finding a sponsor who is a Debian Developer and can check your package.
That is how I do it.

See these site for more information:

Here is information about becoming a debian maintainer:

If you don't want to take over maintenance you can always help any
package by submitting patches to bugs. See:

I am cc-ing this to to debian firebird mailinglist because I could
imagine non debian maintainers might wonder what that RFA I sent means.

Does that answer your question?
