Well, considering that ebuild in question is destined for sci-mathematics it
makes sense to write to sci, or even better email@example.com 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 ;).
