Thanks a lot. I have added xmltex to our subversion repository. If you
want to participate in further development - which we would welcome - we
can add you to the Debian TeX Task Force project on alioth for write
access to the repository.

I already made some changes:
xmltex (1.9-12~1) unstable; urgency=low

  * new maintainer: Debian TeX Task Force
  * remove Makefile, move everything to debian/rules
  * switch to dh_installtex:
    - adapt debian/rules
    - remove postinst and postrm, they are generated by dh_installtex
    - add dependency on tex-common (>= 0.19)
  * move debhelper from build-deps-indep to build-deps
  * change dependencies to texlive
  * switch to use pdftex instead of pdfetex (Closes: #419987, and many more)
  * fix the texmf.d snippet to include latex path component in the
    search path
  * bump standards version to 3.7.2, no changes necessary
