Are you interested in maintaning this driver directly yourself in the new 
printer-drivers overlay [1]?

If yes, just send me via personal e-mail at dilfridge@gentoo.org the
following data, so we can give you git push access to the overlay:
* the user name that you'd like to have
* your public ssh key [2], so we can give you git push access to the overlay
* your e-mail address
* and your full name
If you have a gnupg key, you should sign that e-mail [3].

Just a few rules:
* Initially, the ebuilds should work for you, and not break
  anything else.
* You enter yourself as maintainer in metadata.xml (together with
  the printing herd), and are then automatically cc'ed in bug reports 
  on bugzilla.
* We will guide you towards improving the ebuilds over the next 
  months so they follow the rules and qa guidelines of the Gentoo 
  main portage tree. In particular this means also using a recent
  EAPI (3 or perferably 4), and fixing repoman warnings [4].
  Don't worry, we'll help you with that.
* I hope this is never going to happen, but... ebuilds that "work but 
  go against the guidelines" and do not see any improvement will be 
  removed again one year after initial addition.

There are many ways to get help.
* You can directly ask me by personal e-mail (my time is limited, 
  but I'll try), 
* you can ask on freenode, channel #gentoo-dev-help,
* you can read the documentation (ebuild howto [5], devmanual [6]), 
* ...
