Sometimes modules get abandoned because they are no longer needed or
no longer make sense. Features get added to core,  CCK+Views come
along and deprecate whole swaths of modules, etc. People need to know
that a module has been abandoned, which is usually best communicated
on the project node itself.  But, if you've done that and want to make
it more clear (and, maybe, stop getting contacted to help with the
module) what can you do?


The "Abandoned Modules" user. He's too busy sunning himself in Antigua
to care about his modules.  He's unemployed and loving it.  Give him
your dead modules, won't you?  If you are the author of a module and
would like it to be assigned to this user and can't do it yourself,
file an issue about it: http://drupal.org/project/issues/webmasters

Note: except in rare situations, this is not for just modules that
need a new maintainer.  You should find that some other way.  The
"Abandoned Module" owner is like a graveyard.
