We should also take care of "memory", "foundation" and "basement".
No action is taken for over a month to

I cannot switch my main GHC version to 9.0 at this moment.


> Hello Haskell-cafe,
> I'm writing to discuss the future of the package cryptonite, including scenarios where it would be acceptable to take over the package - by me & Kazu (in CC), who already maintains hs-tls, and anyone else who is qualified and willing.
> The current maintainer Vincent (in CC) has been unresponsive to several attempts to contact him by email over the past several months, and is not responsive to PRs [1] on github. He is not entirely dormant, he has made a bugfix release in January, however otherwise he does not communicate.
> Based on [2] and some other hearsay, I understand that Vincent has "quit Haskell". The other maintainer, Oliver Chéron has also explicitly said that he has quit Haskell [3].
> We have also attempted to contact other members of the haskell-crypto github group, however only one of them responded to say they don't feel they can make decisions for cryptonite.
> Under what time frame does the list think it would be acceptable to take over the package? And additionally, are there any other interested volunteers to co-maintain? (I do not want to be the main maintainer, due to more direct interests in other topics.)
