Makes good sense to mantain that library separately. Great that you've
already done the initial preparations - please do go ahead with filing
an ITP for it!
If you don't mind swithing the packaging style from the current
short-form dh to CDBS, then I would be happy to help maintain it. I can
do the transition, or I can guide you - both is fine with me.
Also fine with you keeping current packaging style and finding someone
else to sponsor/co-maintain.
