I agree completely.  Should the same happen to a Dell employee who
happens to also maintain packages in Fedora, should they both leave
Dell and stop actively maintaining their packages, I would expect
others from Dell who are aware that person has left to step up and ack
the NRM request.

If Mihai had updated his FAS account with an active email address, I'd
be happy to send mails there.  As it stands, the address is a
non-functional @redhat.com address, with no good way to reach him, and
clearly no maintainence on his part in years.
