I'm adding in the loop owner at BTS so he can update the description on
https://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/ using the same singular they
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they) format we have in
reportbug; this is the description we have atm:

"This is a `Request For Help'. The current maintainer wants to
continue to maintain this package, but they need some help to do this
because their time is limited or the package is quite big and needs
several maintainers."
