I wasn't aware about that. It's orphaned now.

I have 2 additionnal comments:

1- I would like to remind everyone that after adding a package in the 
repo, don't forget to adopt it in the dashboard. Several packages are 
being orphaned because of that.

2- Several packages that were previously owned are now orphaned: azureus, 
centerim, opera, etc. Where they orphaned by mistake? If not, in the 
future, could everyone post a quick note on the ML when a package is being 
orphaned? That way, everyone will be informed and a new maintainer will be 
found more quickly or at least we'll be able to manage these orphans more 
appropriately. Otherwise, we'll wake up one day with dozens of orphans 
like was the situation before the cleanup.
