Yeah, that was my impression as well. I've observed take-overs here, and 
they pretty much are exactly the same procedure -- "Hey, is John 
Doe-Smith still working on his modules? No? The can you grant 
co-maintenance to Jane Roe-Jones?" (Granted with more-back-and-forth 
than that, but it still isn't new.)

Really, the only thing that could help with the current situation is a 
direct contact number, and I don't see that happening.

(For what it's worth, having gone through a similar situation when my 
mother passed away recently, I'm setting up a list of accounts to be 
mailed if I get hit by a bus for my brother and sister, but that's about 
the only change I'm making right now.)

Oh, I can think of some changes. But they're not relevant to the 
discussion here.
