Hi, actually runit in Debian now has a new maintainer, who's definitely
more responsive and active than me.

For some reason, interest in the runit project raised again over the
last months, although I didn't do any work on it, since years I guess.
I even got a recent donation of notable amount. Thanks for interest and
contributions, no matter in which form.
