Hi all,

  I had also tried recently to contact James Cook regarding
maintainership of `gamma` (https://github.com/mokus0/gamma/pull/4) and
three years ago about `hs-hdf5`
but he seldom checks email and github issues it seems.

First of all, I hope he is well, and second, I once more volunteer to
help with the maintenance of these packages.
