Perhaps, unless someone step up, it would be nice to move packages that have
no maintainer anymore into a github organisation (haskell-janitors ?),
where each package could have many owners and it's easy and simple to add/remove 
push rights there.

That could also be an obvious place to look, for newcomers, to get involved.
