[development] seeking module maintainers

Dear list,

It has taken some time before I was able to admit it to myself, but  
due to some extensive changes in my academic career I no longer have  
time to actively and responsibly maintain the modules I created. To  
be honest, I even didn't get to thoroughly study the changes in  
Drupal 5 from a developer's perspective, so I don't see myself  
upgrade these modules any time soon.

I prioritized my Drupal and other activities, and I have decided that  
in the foreseeable future I will only continue to contribute to the  
Drupal project as the treasurer of the Drupal Association, and no  
longer as a module developer, since I believe that the Association is  
currently more important to support Drupal and help the project grow.

Therefore, the following modules need new maintainers:

Flash Gallery http://drupal.org/project/flash_gallery
Graphstat http://drupal.org/node/33946
Inactive User http://drupal.org/node/10435
Simplenews http://drupal.org/project/simplenews

As for Simplenews (critical for drupal.org), RobRoy (http:// 
drupal.org/user/22975) already has cvs access, and released a working  
5.x version of the module. Furthermore, Sutharsan (http://drupal.org/ 
user/73854) provided a lot of great patches for simplenews lately.  
I'll forward this e-mail to him in case he doesn't read this list.

I will unsubscribe from most public Drupal mailing lists soon, you  
can contact me in private through http://drupal.org/user/17892/ for  
cvs access and/or module ownership. Drupal.org site administrators  
are also free to perform these actions. I'd only like my name to be  
mentioned as the original author on the project page and README.txt  
of Flash Gallery, Graphstat and Simplenews.
