No, the first time I've contacted Ed was with my previous email,
actually. I did check in the PTS and his activity in the last two or
three years is quite low.
I don't think I want or should take over the package. The time I can
devote to Debian is really scarce these days and I should actually get
rid of Debian duties, other than accepting new ones.

If Ed agrees with handing the package over, I can orphan it and do a QA
upload, or post a RFA. That would fix the Ubuntu issue I mentioned, too,
as they would only need to do a no-change rebuild to get it in sync.
If Ed doesn't react, maybe orphaning it is best after all.
