I intend to maintain sawfish.  I am a long time user of sawfish,
because it can mimics the layout of windows buttons of OS X.  I am a
long time user of Debian and package maintainer for some years.  I am
not a Debian Developer, but I have a sponsor.  Someone that reviews my
work and upload it to Debian.

The sawfish version in Debian is old but still very usable.  That's a
good sign about the quality of the code.

I have prepared new packages for librep, rep-gtk and sawfish.
Currently I am waiting for my sponsor to review the work and upload it
to experimental.

If there is interest I can upload somewhere else the packages so you
can do a preview of what will be included in Debian.
