Sorry, but I'm unaware of any other discussions joss@ has had with
Ryan. I don't think a post on d-d really counts as making contact with
the current maintainer.
I think choosing to adopt a package without the maintainer's consent
should be a last resort, and that if you do that, you should show that
you've taken all the other steps possible to correct the situation
before coming to the last resort.
"I've contacted Ryan several times through private email, and
received no response. Patches submitted against bugs on the
package have not been applied. There's been no indication that
the current maintainer has a plan for the package or that the
package's state is dependent on other factors (upstream or the
Gnome packages in general). The package hasn't been updated in __
months, and it has __ critical and __ non-critical bugs. It is __
versions behind upstream. I've talked to debian-qa, and rather
than adopting the package into QA, we think it's better that I
take it over directly. So, I'm doing that."
