apt-get source blender

and then read the debian/changelog file to see who has been maintaining
this package most recently.

Then you can just apt-get source blender as above, make your tweaks to
the package (including a dch -i to add a new changelog section
describing your changes) and rebuild the changed package yourself using
debuild :)

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Complete for some more
details on Ubuntu packaging.  You do not need to contact the last
maintainer just to create a changed package for yourself and your friends.
