I saw the ITP on 2014-12-01 and contacted the person on IRC the same
day (~2 weeks after the ITP).

to commit some changes to the git repo but I noticed that you had
filed a ITP
<micove> would you like to join the team?
<frozencemetery> hi, nice to meet you.  Sure; I'd love to cooperate
with you all!  This is my first debian package, so apologies if I'm a
little slow on thing

He joined the #debian-multimedia channel since that day. My
understanding was that he was going to formally join the team and help
maintain the package under the team umbrella. I had not heard from him
since that day so I assumed he was no longer interested in packaging

I was in contact with Reinhard and he had reviewed (not sure if he has
seen the last 10 commits)

and seemed pleased with the packaging. I already finished all my
changes as of 20 hours ago and since the transitional FFmpeg hit
experimental a few hours ago it compiles with the new FFmpeg package
names. Reinhard may have more information about the status of the
package in the team.
