If there is a team or a loose group around parrot packaging then that burden can be shared - like in the Debian perl group. It is considered bad form to upload NMUs however and I'm sure that is something that everyone wants to avoid.

Yup, it's this team and this mailing list, and the alioth page is:
We haven't had much uptake yet. Pretty much it's been just me (doing the
packaging) and my Debian mentor Colin Watson (doing the uploading). A
few people have popped up once, but they don't seem to stick around. I
don't know why.
I'd welcome any and all additional work on Parrot packaging.
On the two different 3.0 packages now (by Kyle and Dominique), is your
work compatible or conflicting? As in, could I combine your work into
one set of fixes, and apply it to the 3.3 release?
I've been slammed with another release this week, but I'll look over the
two sets of packaging this weekend and see if I can combine them.
