I an too new (to packaging) to have an opinion on this. Using bazaar on LP 
seems to work nicely though.

I am working on that, and getting it accepted to precise eventhough the 
FeatureFreeze is effective already. See bug #905610

I am willing to join the team (at least for a while), personally I do not use 
mc, so I wonder whether I am the right person to become a permanent member. 
But for now I'll help out with packaging and merging upstream versions. I am 
also willing to get it accepted in Debian.
But, I am very new to packaging, distributions, FeatureFreezes, etc. 
(basically new to all!), so I would need guidance when helping out.

Best regards,
