Looks better but I would suggest recommending co-maintainership rather 
than a complete hand off. If a Fedora package maintainer has shown no 
interest when asked and a new maintainer has taken over and been working 
on EPEL which has a different release strategy and policies then it is 
better than the existing maintainer in EPEL work together with the 
Fedora maintainer and help in any transition process or continue as a team.
