[development] Module maintainer is not available -- how should I go on?

it seems to me that the weather module [1] is currently not maintained. The 
last commit is two years old, the current code in CVS targets Drupal 4.5.0. 
Moreover, the data source used for the weather reports is no longer 
available on the internet.

I have written a replacement for that module which works for Drupal 4.7 and 
Drupal 5 and tried to contact the original maintainer about the update. 
However, I had no luck so far. My request to be added to the developer list 
of the module has been unanswered for a week now [2].

Is there any standard procedure for such things, e.g. how long do I have to 
wait to take over maintainership of the module?
