I parsed his statement as meaning "Okay, since my opinion as maintainer
of this package isn't being accepted, I'm declaring the package
orphaned; now anyone who wants to work on it can do so".

I mean, I hope I'm wrong, because orphaning would be a drastic and
unfortunate outcome from this - but that's how I interpret it.
