Hello colleagues developers,
Following the procedure http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_maintainer_policy#What_to_do_if_a_maintainer_is_absent
I would like to take the ownership of the dd_rescue and ddrescue packages.

It seems it is not possible to contact original owner of these packages - Andreas Thienemann - for quite some time.

- I have tried several times to contact the owner - bugzilla/emails

- bugs for the upgrade to current versions are opened for extensive time
ddrescue https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=591042
dd_rescue https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=807220

- tried to search for contact here on the devel list

If nobody has any objections I would like to co-maintain these packages,
continue updating these packages and keeping Andreas Thienemann as co-maintainer for the
case he would return to Fedora world.

Best regards
Michal Ambroz
