Technically if the package is maintained by a team, it should be adopted
by the team.
That said, if noone else in the team uses it, I would expect you to
stick around to support it.
Anybody else uses it? Or Ventrilo?

What about 'Copyright 2010 Roman Tetelman'? The copyrights file needs
some work, I believe. There's also '"humbaba" <anonymous>' mentioned in
debian/copyright . Was this raised in the mentors list?

Two other issues I had with the package:
1. Do you really need libdmalloc-dev as a build dependency? It is not
mentioned in http://www.mangler.org/building/ .
2. Is libmangler3 an independent library or an internal one? If it is an
independent library, it should be packaged in its own package (or
rather: two: one for the dev package).
I noticed it already has SONAME 3. Why is that?
