I never learnt packaging. As a lazy person the weight of learning
packaging is more than the weight of building things myself
(even if cmake is kind of changing the balance, lately, not letting
me just type ./configure && make).

That said, I think you should ask the screamers about maintaining
the package, not me (I don't scream for qgis package :)

Helping users to help themselves may grow the community even more!
