Hi Pavan,

I'm willing to help with that. How would you like to proceed? Do you
want to maintain the package yourself, and only need a sponsor or backup
maintainer, or do you want me to maintain the package and refer to you
for issues?

Also, there was an ITP (Intent to Package) bug opened about mpich2
(http://bugs.debian.org/420638) a long time ago. I'm Ccing the bug and
the submitter, since he might want to step in, and technically has
priority over packaging mpich2.
