Hi Dmitry, 

I'd like to push forward the Fluxbox version in Debian to the
latest. If you are too busy, I can take a stab.

If so, will you sponsor me to review & upload it when I'm
done? (I'm currently maintaining two Debian packages and am in
the process of getting being officially recognized as DM)

but didn't get any reply until now.

Thus, I'm officially requesting to salvage the package now,
taking over the maintainership.
