I'd recommend team maintenance in Debian Science team since the package
seems to fit. This would enable us to apply the suggested patch (see
Message #10 in #848748 - thanks to Rebecca N. Palmer). I'd volunteer to
move the package to Debian Science Git and will assume agreement if I
do not hear from Kouhei Maeda soon.

No better proposal since I have no idea how to fix those execnet bugs.
IMHO it would not really fit into Debian Science team but if there is no
agreement to move it to Debian Python Modules Team (which is usually
only given if there is an *active* Uploader behind which I'm not) we
could also try Debian Science Git - but moving it here alone is not
magically solving the issues.
