Default About wormo's situation?

Hello

I have seen some package metadatas still referring to wormo as their
maintainer:
$ grep -r wormo */*/metada*
app-admin/ulogd/metadata.xml: <email>wormo@gentoo.org</email>
app-arch/pdv/metadata.xml: <email>wormo@gentoo.org</email>
www-client/lynx/metadata.xml: <email>wormo@gentoo.org</email>


But, reading http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=72682 looks like she
retired some time ago. What is her real situation? Should that packages
be moved to maintainer-needed (if nobody cares about them)?

Please note that this problem appeared because a user mailed us about
some unresolved problem with ulogd since a lot of time.

Thanks a lot for clarifying this :-)

Quote from bug: "..increase her activity by proxy-maintaining some
packages" and
http://bugs.gentoo.org/custom_userhistory.cgi?matchstr=wormo@gentoo.org
shows recent activity. So, I don't know..have you tried contacting her
via direct email? Otherwise if there is no action on bugs, I'd wager
that it is 'ok' for you to fix - especially if you communicate and
willing to fix what you break.

Today I got a couple of bugs wrangled by her to me. So at least in
bugwrangling she is still active. And that constantly.
