No need for such harsh email. I don't think TUs would disown before
analising some evidences, like why it is out-of-date, whether the
maintainer is active or not, dates, etc.

Anyway, this maintainer had only one package sent more than a year ago
and did not replied for a week. It doesn't look like he is actually
maintaining something.
