I've removed the user.

In the past only maemo.org admins could accept or reject maintainer
requests. This was done as an easy way to get started, but this needed to
be done better.

Last week I deployed a new version of the maintainer part, with some
changes to the requests. Maintainers of a project will now get maintainer
request notifications per email and can accept or reject the request

I hope this will solve the issue.
