The team is not really active but the tools are there: git repository,
mailing lists on Alioth.

Serge and John (CC'ed) have mentioned their intent to resume the work
on shadow, too. So I guess it's be easy to take things over.

My intent, in the "orphan" bug report, was mostly to officially
announce that nobody should wait for me for package uploads, changes,

I'd happy to hand out the pkg-shadow project on Alioth to another
person, of course, so that the work can continue/resume smoothly.
