I sent him a mail right after posting a reply to the list, and he
responded in about an hour.  He said that he didn't receive an
out-of-date notification, and hadn't noticed it was out of date.  I
told him that if he wants it back, just email us and we'll re-orphan
it.  I just don't like orphaning packages unless we know that the
maintainer isn't already aware of what's going on or they have
disappeared altogether.
