I thought about AWOL, but it takes more time. Adding comaintainer could
be faster, but I don't know if it's required permission for current
maintainer to become a comaintainer?

2. Could be already mentioned bug [2] considered as a "asking for the
maintainer to respond"?

3. Has to be whole procedure carried by a person who want to take the
package over or (s)he has to only post a formal request to the
maintainers list?
