Yes you can! Just contact the maintainer and ask to become maintainer or co-maintainer. You
will also need to get an official status in the Debian community. If the lengthy process of
becoming a Debian Developer bothers you (see http://www.debian.org/devel/join/newmaint), just
try to become Debian Maintainer. See http://wiki.debian.org/Maintainers, it's never been as
easy to contribute to Debian by maintaining your own package.
