You probably do not need to maintain it in pkgsrc-wip unless you need to
practice or have a lot of changes to test first.
I'd suggest you just make your changes directly to
pkgsrc/databases/metakit-lib and provide any diff -u or new files via
send-pr (or maybe via this mailing list but might be overlooked).
Thanks for your offer to maintain this.
I don't knowingly use the software myself, but I may be able to help.
