Is SZALAY Attila <sasa@debian.org> MIA?

His last upload was over three months ago (Feb 10th, 2005) and does
not respond to his emails. I've tried contacting him via his debian
email address with no success (first message sent April 13th, CC'd
co-maintainer <mag@debian.org> who responded; sent a reminder message

reports, there are many old bugs that have patches which fix the bugs

that it deserves, but I did not wish to be rude. I have tried to
contact the maintainer to offer my help for over a month with a
reminder ping email, so I am now sending this message here as the MIA
procedure suggests. At what point would it be appropriate to begin
to actively maintain syslog-ng?
