ufiformat's listed maintainer is Ben Collver. He has 4 builds, and hasn't
updated any of them since 2010 (and at least two of them need version
updates). You can try to email him, but 10 years is a long time...

You're right, Dimitris Zlatanidis is still active, I don't know why this
was on the list, it shouldn't be.

Stu Reedy is listed as maintainer for this. It's his only build, it's
on the list because he hasn't updated it since 2014 (over 5 years
ago now). However, there's no need for an update (new releases from
upstream). Probably should contact him before taking this one over,
if you can reach him.
