I disagree with this assessment. Is usually the responsibility of any
new maintainer to contact the old maintainer for any package they want
to salvage/hijack. In this case I made the initial contact as a way to
show that work was actually being done in the package and asked him to
join the Team since help is always appreciated.

Since the other party knew the package was being worked on. It's rude
to upload anything.

He did ask,

Hopefully someone with admin right in the group can help to add him if
he is still interested and there are no objections.

I'm CC Reinhard to see if he can help.
