zope2.9 is simply still sitting in NEW, and is not rejected. I see there
was a clarification requested over the weekend about the big number of
zope versions in the archive (2.9 would be the 4th), and Fabio replied.
This was two days ago, nothing happened since as far as I can see, so
I'd advice to just wait a bit. Fwiw, I don't see a zope2.7 removal
request yet, but maybe I'm looking wrongly?
About who to inform, typically there isn't a maintainer yet for packages
in NEW, so it's a bit tricky. The actual maintainer is only available
after a package is installed, because it's not in the .changes. In most
cases it doesn't matter (uploader & maintainer same person), so while I
agree better notification might be worthwhile, it's also not terribly
high on my list of things to look into.
