*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 704782 ***

They did not add themselves to maintainers in metadata so the assumption is *no*.
As I indicated on bug 704782 and in my commit messages, this package really needs an active maintainer, and that maintainer needs to be listed in metadata.xml. This is important to ensure that bug reports get assigned correctly.
I directly requested vapier to add himself to metadata.xml, but he took no action to that effect.
If anyone wants to restore the package (minus the un-fetchable versions), just make sure metadata.xml is updated appropriately.
I am updating this bug report to treat it as a "new" package request.
ftr, i was in the metadata.xml, but was removed by someone else w/out good reason
