Ok, thanks for clarifying.

Have you two considered co-maintaining the package with the person who
submitted the ITP? the three of you are interested on the package, and
if two is already better than one, three is way better than one single

I'm not an ftpmaster, but pusing a new package into the archive as an
NMU doesn't sound good.
