Well, considering that ebuild in question is destined for sci-mathematics it 
makes sense to write to sci, or even better sci-mathematics@g.o and 
ask for a proxy maintainer. (BTW, at the quick glance your ebuild looked Ok, 
although I did not look very carefully)

However I would suggest taking a bit more active stance and going with science 
overlay. If you are going to be maintaining one package, why not create a 2nd 
or a 3rd one or pick up some that are still in bugzilla but not in the tree. 
You may search for the bugs assigned to sci or sci-mathematics that have a 
maintainer-wanted (or just look through all belonging to these herds) and 
pick the ones you are interested in. Start by updating/correcting some of 
them, then ask for the commit rights to science overlay. Eventually you might 
even want to try becoming a full developer ;).
