I spoke briefly with Christian an hour ago.  He's started on 0.20 packages,
and has a themes package ready, but nothing else yet.

I also spoke with mdz, and found out the same that he's not maintainer
anymore.  I'm going to stop assembling my 0.20 package in favor of waiting
for Christian to finish up his and just use that instead.

And for you Ubuntu people (like me) out there, I was in #ubunut-motu.  Once
Christian finishes up his package, as long as its before the multiverse UVF,
we can get it in for edgy.  Once its in for edgy, we can try to get it for a
backport, but that will be a little more work.
