Hello Markus,

thanks for the initiative!

The takeover is probably fine.  It might be contested by other 
applicants, but there aren't really any stakeholders on the source code 
of rapid.  As far as github tells me, the code was single-handedly 
written by the now passed-away author.

Maybe we should wait the suggested 2 weeks for any contestants before we 
finalize the takeover.

You will need help to get added to


by one of the hackage admins (CCed).

You would likely have to move the code to another github account, would you?

Andreas (in my role as a hackage trustee)

P.S.: I bumped the base-bound of rapid on hackage to ease building with 
newer GHCs.
