Usually you flag it out of date first, maybe post your updated variant
using some paste service and link it there. After a while, like two
weeks, you mail the maintainer. If he doesn't respond you ask on this
list for someone to orphan the package (provide a link to it).
Usually it's orphaned in a matter of hours, then you can adopt and
update it.
