[Haskell-cafe] Maintainership of 3 packages on Hackage by Adjoint Inc

I am a Haskell software developer and I use some packages maintained by
Adjoint Inc from Hackage. Specifically, I am interested in 3 packages:

• elliptic-curve <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/elliptic-curve>

• pairing <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/pairing>

• galois-field <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/galois-field>

Latest versions of these packages have upper bound restrictions on their
dependencies which do not allow to build them with latest versions
available on Hackage. For two packages these restrictions are already
updated in the source repos on GitHub, they just need to be updated on
Hackage. For the third one I opened a PR
<https://github.com/adjoint-io/galois-field/pull/32> on GitHub.

I opened an issue
<https://github.com/adjoint-io/elliptic-curve/issues/21> about updating
elliptic-curve and commented
<https://github.com/adjoint-io/pairing/issues/21> another one about
pairing. Unfortunately, both issues were closed even though Hackage
versions were not updated. My PR wasn't closed, but apparently I was
banned or something because now I can't write comments there.

Since I was unable to get any information on GitHub, I tried to contact
the maintainer by email (info at adjoint.io) written in the "maintainer"
field in all 3 packages, saying that I can make all the updated myself
if they give me permission. Unfortunately, this email address doesn't
seem to work because I got "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" in

So it looks like these packages are effectively unmaintained, but
require some maintenance. I found the "Taking over a package
<https://wiki.haskell.org/Taking_over_a_package>" page which is exactly
about my case. I think I am in the situation where I cannot contact the
author/maintainer, that's why I am writing to Haskell Cafe. I can't CC
the maintainer (info at adjoint.io) because the address simply doesn't
exist. If anybody on the mailing list can reach out to Adjoint, please
do that, I'll be very thankful.
