Well, there is a git package as well, and between the two there are ten
voters. Many people don't vote for both the git package and the main
package, but would likely use the main package if it was in the repos.

That being said, none of this matters unless there is a TU either
interested enough to maintain it already (which hasn't happened?) or
interested in maintaining packages they don't use.

So, it would probably be best for Rafael to poke svenstaro directly as
he maintains a lot of gaming packages, including "teeworlds".
