The current de-facto maintainer seems to be Adam Vogt (aavogt in  
#xmonad). He told me yesterday that he's ready to make a release; the  
only holdup right now is that he does not have write access to  
xmonad.org nor control of the xmonad Twitter feed. The latter seems  
unimportant to me, but making a release and not publishing it on  
xmonad.org seems suboptimal.

I've contacted the previous maintainer on Adam's behalf requesting  
control of the website, but haven't gotten a response yet.
