welcome to join the ime packaging team.

I have found the license for the input method[1], it's GPL, so I think
there is no problem on packaging this input method.

and I suggest you use group maintain, it means
1. join the pkg-ime at http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-ime/
2. put your packaging work at git.debian.org, if you don't know how to
 deal with it, there is a guide in my blog(in Chinese)[2]
3. set the maintainer as "IME Packaging Team
<pkg-ime-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>", and add you as the uploader
