Is this a good time to re-spin the discussion? Considering that it keeps
coming up:

<lionaneesh-andro> bernie: Could you help me takeover maintainership of an inactive activity?
<bernie> lionaneesh-andro: ask alsroot, he maintains aslo
* alsroot only maintains aslo, dirakx was taking care about aslo content
<bernie> lionaneesh-andro: gonzalo_odiard and garycmartin are the activity team coordinators.
<bernie> lionaneesh-andro: there's currently no written process for taking over an unmaintained activity. maybe ask them for permission first?
<bernie> lionaneesh-andro: please, write to sugar-devel@ and cc me, alsroot, gonzalo and gary.
<lionaneesh-andro> bernie: okay. Thanks.
