not sure if I would find time to dedicate... so it must be clean clean for me
to sponsor it right away (i.e. no new issues must be detected)  --
otherwise it would take looong and you might seek sponsorship elsewhere... so
here is the checklist to make sure to address

* MSG in README.Debian sounds like a showstopper

  Cannot find valid copyright holder.

  what is it about exactly since Design Science, Inc. <support at dessci.com> listed in debian/copyright...

  so resolve it one way or another ;)

* fixup packaging so it is fresh lintian clean and builds in  clean

  - I see from looking at debian/ online:
  #Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/collab-maint/libjs-mathjax.git
  #Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/libjs-mathjax.git;a=summary

  - double entries


  - provide description in lintian override why it is legal

* debian/copyright looks complete  but it would be great if you assure that it
  is (another round of licensecheck -r --copyright .)

* make your GPG keys available on a public server
* upload signed packaging to mentors

Otherwise it looks like a great job -- should not be left without upload ;)
