Maybe the best way is to keep debian gis as the maintainer and add you
as an uploader? This is the way that it is done for most packages,
including the current gpsdrive package.
Apart from that: debian/squeeze is frozen now - you/we should decide
if we ask a freeze exception for the package (but then I guess it
should be there very quickly - and of good quality) or whether we fix
the bugs in the old package and build a new package for
experimental/squeeze+1? Are there perhaps reasons why the package was
not yet updated?
