Indeed it may be the case. Currently there are no procedures at Boost
to handle such situation. Maybe there should? As a starting point we
should probably define when a library doesn't have a maintainer and
think about a procedure of notifying the original maintainer/author and
eventually passing the rights to someone else or the CMT.

Anyway, this change is very simple, similar to the one recently made in

was merged. Would it be possible to make an exception also in this case?
