That would be me, as a maintainer of Collabtive.

I am very sorry to admit I have undermaintained Collabtive during the
past year. I am lagging (at least) one upstream version behind, partly
because I want to check API-compatibility for upstream-bundled
libraries (and stop downstream-replicating them, to move to a
dependency-based model. I also do some minor DFSG-cleaning, but IIRC
I'm up to date with that.

I am writing this mail as a first unofficial-RFA, or at least
unofficial-RFH. I don't see myself getting more free time in the near
future. This is a very low-maintenance package (and has a quite low
popcon score), so it should not be much of a burden for anybody.

So... Any takers?
