This is not a typical non-responsive maintainer problem. His email account 
listed on the package db entry is closed for a fact. So, why follow a 
proceedure that will take a few weeks when I know for a fact that I need to 
reassign some packages?  :)

I suspect the orphaning process should be followed in cases like this - but 
before its too late.
