I concur, but it's rude for us to just barge in like that. It's a
simple matter between the developer and the buildscript maintainer, so
it's best left up to them to contact each other, and then if the
maintainer tries anything funny (or does not try anything at all) we
disown it.

A 7-day or next-weekend grace period is good for things like this (for
the maintainer to respond to the orphan request). I had once orphaned
a package for a developer who didn't even claim it (synfig*), but it
took me a while before I read and replied to the e-mail outlining a
build-related matter.
