Hi Nuno,

Since both you an submitter (Sergei) checked that the current maintainer
(Cory) has not been around for long, I would go with the proposed change
and let the submitter be the new maintainer.

That would be only for
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257991

Now, if Cory has more unmaintained ports (can't check right now) and Sergei
steps up to take the task, I would ask him to open a new PR requesting
maintainership. If he doesn't, it might still be good to open the PR and
reset maintainership. That way at least more people would be notified via
portscout when there is a new upstream version. Someone might come along
and update the port :-)

HTH
