 because:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers

 * After 2 attempts of no contact, the reporter asks if anyone knows how
   to contact the maintainer.

 * After another 7 days, the reporter posts a formal request to the
   fedora-devel list with the bug link.

 * If at least one FESCo member approves the takeover and no one objects
   within 3 days, the requester may take over the package.
