I was in a similar situation with a few modules.   The process I 
followed at the time was the following:

1) Use d.o. contact form twice.
2) Open an Issue against project asking for co-maintainership there with 
a decent interval (I used 2 weeks)
3) Mail INFRASTRUCTURE list to ask for co-maintainership.
4) Continue trying to contact project maintainer while working issue queue.

Good Luck
