It is great that you want to look after your own package. However the
way you chose to do so is not how to get maintainership of one.

Basically you created a duplicate package with an obfuscated name
(going against the current convention of naming gnome-shell themes) and
asked a Trusted User to merge an existing one into yours. While at the
same time not even leaving a comment on the existing package asking for
mainainership or at the very least to discuss your plans.

I am more than happy to disown the package for you to pickup however
please consider to act in a more circumspect manner in regards to
stripping other users of packages.

Best regards,
