Inclusion of xfce4-equake-plugin in xfce debian package

I was wondering if it would be possible to include xfce4-equake-plugin 
in an existing xfce package such as xfce4-goodies because it makes it 
easier to release an update.

Right now every time I release an update or fix I have to find a debian 
mentor to actually release it, which sometimes can take months. If it is 
part of an existing xfce package where the mainbtainer can release it 
themselves I only have to release the update to the xfce website for 
automatic inclusion (I believe).

I am working on a fix to make it work with the newer xfce4 panel in 
debian testing.

The reason I released the package on its own to debian some years ago is 
because when I asked this before on here it didn't seem possible. Or 
rather the response was jaded, which I can understand. So I had to do 
all the work myself to get it into debian.

It just gets tiresome to find a mentor each time.

Thank you,
