This may be helpful:

IMHO it is *always* best to receive the blessing of the former
maintainers before forking or taking over maintenance. If you have tried
to contact the current maintainers and they are unresponsive, then post
to a public forum such as this one and say "I really want to maintain
this code but the current maintainers are missing in action, this
message is notice that I would like to take over maintenace" etc.

Personally I don't like the j2 name because it is confusing and I'd love
it if someone changed the name via fork or new maintainer. But I don't
have standing on that project so it's not for me to say.

Oh Tomasz, and thanks for contributing to j2. :-)

Peter
