Sure, my goal is not to hijack the package nor to minimize the work of
anybody. Note that since I am not a DD nor a DM, I have not the power of
doing so, even if I wanted to. Also note that I have contacted Adam and
asked about his opinion.

My goal was 1) to have a package working for me 2) to share this with
 other intersted users 3) to give my contribution to the maintenance of
 the package.

I am willing to help in any collaborative setup, including, if Adam
agrees, the Debian Multimedia Maintainers team.
