ack 2.04 is packaged for 10.7 and 10.8, but there was none for 10.9 yet. I took the 10.8 .info file and updated it (note I did not change the Maintainer: field), and took the opportunity to bump the version to 2.10 (latest stable).
232 is kind of a strange revision number for a brand new version. :-) Definitely not a show-stopper, though.
Typically we separate the revisions for packages that need to be rebuilt when updating the OS--like those that use the system's Perl, by something like 10 or 20, or maybe 100 if a lot of tweaks are expected to be necessary. In practice, since only a 10.7 -> 10.8 upgrade is actually supported by Fink, something like -1 for 10.6 and 10.7 and -11 for 10.8 and 10.9 would suffice (even -1 for 10.9, but I personally prefer that revisions don't decrease with increasing OS version even when upgrades are disallowed).
If you would be interested in becoming the maintainer, then feel free to contact the listed maintainer about it and if he says it's OK or doesn't reply in a few days go ahead and put yourself in the role.
I know he hasn't had time to do much of anything for Fink packages in a long time.

Updated .info file attached, with revision number reset to something sensible. :)
The previous ack.patch isn't necessary any more?
Looks like not. I bumped the revision to 31, just to be a little conservative.
