Peter de Schrijver is alive but apparently doesn't have time to respond
to email. I have NMUd coriander 2.0.0~rc5 and libdc1394 2.0.0~rc7, but I
uploaded them to experimental. I have already offered to take over
maintainership, but haven't heard either a "no" or a "yes" from Peter.

Unless Peter de Schrijver responds, I'll be happy to have a look at your
packages and upload them to unstable if they are in good shape. From a
quick glance, it looks OK, but I'd name the source package libdc1394-22
