AFAICT Ayman is MIA and doesn't respond to mails.

I just prepared NMU for ddrescue package (see #533483).
I'm working on NMU for gddrescue (see #460946) as well.

I'd volunteer in taking over maintenance for the ddrescue and
gddrescue packages if there aren't any objections.

Does anyone know how to reach Ayman Negm?
What's the proper way to take over the packages if Ayman
doesn't respond?
