I was reading this Topic and I was wondering if there is any new about this. I would like to take ownership of some crate which did not receive any update since over a year. The maintainer does seems to check their issue. Currently is there any way to transfert the crate instead of forking and using a new name ?
Without the owner's involvement? No. Not even if they're squatting, much less if it's an actual crate.
The Package Ownership section does say
If necessary, the team may reach out to inactive maintainers and help mediate the process of ownership transfer.
So you could contact the crates.io team.
