I was hoping someone else would respond. :)

Requests to revive a package work just like any other request for a new package: http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/#l1. Like this:

To: submit@bugs.debian.org
Subject: RFP: dog -- Enhanced replacement for cat

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

The cat enhancement dog(1) is quite useful and not a big maintenance burden, so I would be happy to see it back in Debian. Version XXXXX from snapshot.debian.org works well for me.

That it is not a big maintenance burden would be especially believable if you promise to look out for bugs and fix them. If you have time for it, http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ and especially http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMentorsFaq have hints.
