I think you've piqued my interest. I would be willing to help out if you still need a co-maintainer.
Well of course, so far no one else stepped up. ;-) Are you already a packager and have some experience with java packaging? If yes, then I would be happy to approve your requests for ACL on the package in packagedb.
The main task in the future would be to introduce groovy 2.0.0 into fedora which will need a considerable amount of work due to the new build system they are using.
At the moment, all I do is updating the stable 1.8.X branch, so this could be your first task, since I think they released a new update recently.
I was the groovy co-maintainer for quite a while now. The problem is that I don't have sufficient time any more to do enough development and work on packages I don't care much about.
The original maintainer probably has the same problem and doesn't really care about the package, so I was the only one doing updates etc. in the last couple of months.
I would be really glad if someone could step up and co-maintain the package. Otherwise I will release my co-maintainership in a short while.
