You should contact the maintainer first. Sometimes you'll find that
it's been largely abandoned and sometimes you'll find the maintainer
just doesn't bother with tracking every minor version number (I fall
into the latter category).

If the maintainer has abandoned it or is no longer interested in it,
forward your correspondence to us so we'll know and can assign you as
the new maintainer.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
