[aur-general] maintaining orphaned packages

I've been using Arch Linux for many years now, and I have done some
packaging for other distros. I maintain a few slackbuild scripts for
Slackware at Slackbuilds.org, one small package in the Debian tree,
and currently maintain two ports in the FreeBSD ports tree. I also
contribute documentation patches to FreeBSD.
I'm a huge supporter of Arch and have really enjoyed using it all this
time, so I thought I'd like to start contributing to its package
maintenance. I have an x86_64 machine, so can probably help with
packages for both x86_64 and i686.
My question is about unsupported packages in AUR. Can I go ahead and
adopt some or is there some approval process first? I don't have any
specifically in mind at the moment, but from time to time I've come
across orphaned packages that I use and thought about adopting them.
Ok, 'nuff ramblin' from me.
