It would be interesting to know why she left: some problems in
packaging (like license issue) or simply a lack of interest? Miriam,
feel free to fill my lack of knowledge here ;)

About where to put the team email, read this chapter[1] of our
policy[2]. In order to request for access to our team SVN repository,
please click ln "Request to join" on alioth page[3].

Just read the canonical documents: Debian Policy, Developers
Reference, New Maintainers Guide, and do be afraid to ask for
questions, both on this list or on debian-mentors at l.d.o.

If it's easier for you, you can come and join us on #debian-python IRC
channel on OFTC network.

In case of questions, ask.
