Actually I do it the other way around and look for the last person to
announce the package.  That is usually a pretty good indication of who
the maintainer is.  The alternative is actually installing Pine, which
is actually something that I'm not interested in doing in this case.

I talked about doing that once but, lately, I've just been using

If no one beats me to it, I'll do it tomorrow.

One tiny nit, however.  It would be a lot easier if you provided URLs to
the setup.hint and the two tar balls in your upload message.  Then it
is just a simple cut and paste to upload.  The alternative is visiting
the URL and grabbing stuff from there.  It's not that big a deal but
if you provide those then things are more likely to be uploaded.

In fact, it's entirely possible that if you provide that info, Corinna
may beat me to it, and upload things tomorrow.  I know that she has
asked for similar information in the past.
