I've just done an upload that switches maintainership to the Lego team.  I did 
some package cleanup as well.

I'm glad to be putting the package in good hands.  I just don't have the time

I've committed my last upload to the Debian Python Modules Team Git repository

uses git-dpm, so it may look a bit odd if you aren't used to the branch 

Good luck,
