[drupal-devel] Modules up for adoption

Greetings drupal-devel,

Sometime in the next month or 2, I'm going to be pulled into a 
non-Drupal project for a few months. As I won't have much time to spend 
on the modules that I've created thus far, I'm placing them up for 
adoption. Anyone interested in taking over the maintenance of any of 
these please let me know. I don't want to see them rot on the vine and 
would rather somebody potentially take them in a different direction 
then have them sit unused and neglected.

attached_node <http://drupal.org/node/11988>
Status: Working
Needs: Future maintenance and occasional bug fixes (currently a few to 
look at)

editasnew <http://drupal.org/node/16806>
Status: Working
Needs: Future maintenance and occasional bug fixes

relativity <http://drupal.org/node/17004>
Status: Functional but not quite 100%. Will be soon, though.
Needs: TLC, proper documentation/help, rethink the UI a bit (simplify it)

Status: Functional but not very robust. Relies on mime_registry. 
Neglected for quite a while now.
Needs: Current and future maintenance. Needs to be made stable enough to 
be part of a public project. This is not a simple project, so buyer beware.

Status: Functional based on other drupal 4.5.1 modules 
(image,filestore2,etc). Neglected for quite a while now.
Needs: An advocate to promote this to other module developers (so it's 
hooks are supported). Currently, there are dependencies on specific 
versions of other contrib modules. Also not a simple project.

I'll still be around for another month or two, so anyone taking over a 
module won't be standing out in the cold wondering why the hell I wrote 
something the way I did (though I might not always have an answer :P ).
