I have tried to get feedback on this issue using the garage at maemo.org list and
the mozilla bugtracker but still have no luck. lets try it this way.
It is very frustrating to get no feedback.

We kender is I have started porting an application (shell-fm) that
allows to listen to last-fm
streams from the command shell. we have been searching for similar projects and
I found the maemo-fm project, which seemed to be trying to reach the same goal.

kender tried to contact the developer though personal mail and the "Join us
button" on the project page, but he did not get an answer.We have
asked on the #maemo channel, so, if someone knows the developer, but
nobody seems to know him.The maemo-fm[1] project was registered
2006-09-30 but did not ever release any files or posted code.

We like the name of the package and would like to take over the
project. What do I need to to to accomplish this?

on irc Jaffa suggested a cleaning project. Authors of non-active
project would receive a mail requesting them to publish code or give
the project away

This would happen by sending a notice to all the "head
developers of any project", if they don't answer the mail and the
project is deleted or transfered. This is called a garage sale :)

The mud project is having the same kind of problems with the exist
ports that are listed in on the wiki, we are ready to port more
see http://www.maemopeople.org/index.php/jaffa/2007/01/31/mud_ports_of_existing_packages

Your advice on this matter would also be appreciated.
