(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached 
to this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the 
main tree.
Heuristics show that no Gentoo developer has commented on your ebuild.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. 
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,

No comments have been made on this bug report for some time.
Is anyone still interested in integration of this package? 

If yes, please indicate that here in this bug report.

Otherwise we'll resolve the bug in the near future, since sci(-*) has
an extremely large number of pending package requests and we would like
to focus...

Well, it's been three and a half years, extcalc is at 0.9.3 and based on QT4 now. Feel free to bump the ebuild and include it. It's easy to compile.
If you're not interested in it yourself, don't include it. Because it should be maintained to follow upstream (~two releases a year). (Yes, it's crap that Gentoo ebuild maintenance completely depends on individual developers (not herds as a whole), but that's the way it is.)
