Why just don't transfer ownership of add-on to another willing developer
under certain rules?
Making this up, but something like this:
* add-on must have open source licence
* original developer is MIA for lets say more then 6 months
* ATO/ATN staff tried to contact original developer at least 3 time in
period of 1 month
After all this, it would be certain that original developer isn't
interested in maintaining add-on and we can transfer add-on to another
