Consider ITP's as advisory locks. If you're interested in maintaining
a package then it's useful information on how to avoid work (email the guy,
get whatever he's done so far), or a useful advisory of who might be worth
cooperating with (do the work yourself, upload it, email the guy and offer
to pass along maintainership when he's ready, or co-maintain it if he's
interested).

In either case, if you don't get responses, just maintain it yourself. If
you get responses later - even months later - be appreciative of the help.

Cheers,
aj
