Thanks in advanced,

I have not heard from him for months now. The only address of him i
remember is <solomon@futureks.net>, unfortunately.
I'll check my mail archives tonight.

Why has his key been revoked? (Probably because he knew he loses the
mail address?)

He used to sit on IRC in OPN, #debian-devel, nick solomon and/or
solomonwo, but he hasn't been there recently.

No, i already suggested that the package is orphaned. I don't have time
to further maintain galeon (neither my other packages)

I had been talking to solomon when i started doing the NMUs; he was very
happy by then. I then had to reduce the time i can spend on galeon
(that's why i didn't take over galeon completely by then), but he told
me that he was going to have more free time to spend on galeon soon.
Then he disappeared... I think the last-seen date in db.debian.org
closely matches the time i last saw him, too.

But there have been three people willing to take over maintainance.
(and they've been updating galeon-snapshot recently)
I think they might already have an updated galeon package ready, and
just want to wait for mozilla 1.2.1 (you know the rumors, i guess)

You might just want to ask on debian-devel.
