AWOL process for Jeff Carlson

I would like to initiate the non-responsive maintainer policy [1]
against Jeff Carlson. Jeff has not touched his packages in a long
while and one of them 'zile' [2] has missed a number of upstream
releases since then. An effort was made to contact by filing a bug
against 'zile': However even after
subsequent reminders he did not respond. Attempts were made to contact
him over email, but it looks like his email address is also out of
order. So chances are he his not even getting the Bugzilla emails.

In the meantime a new contributor, Rakesh [3], has come forward, who
is interested in one of his packages -- zile. As the package had not
been touched by a human for quite sometime and Rakesh needed a sponsor
a review was submitted: Since then
Rakesh has been sponsored and his review request approved.

So can we declare Jeff Carlson as AWOL and transfer ownership of
'zile' to Rakesh?

Happy hacking,
