There is a 2.0.20140101-1 release in experimental, put together by 
Hideki (cc'ed) who also seems like the most active on that package in 

What's the status of that release?

If relevant, I can offer to get involved with it - but since I am not 
comfortable with the magic of the short-for dh sequencer, that offer 
implies switching the packaging to CDBS.  I suspect some might not want 
that (for exact same reason).

Please do tell if that is of interest.
