Is it possible to adopt an orphaned plugin so as to bring it up to date with Moodle if the maintainer is no longer available? I have no way to reach the developer through Moodle, and the person whom he originally wrote the plugin for is unable to contact him. I reviewed the documentation at https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugins_adoption_programme, but he's no longer even logging into Moodle. I'm just bringing it up to Moodle 3 coding guidelines and PHP 7 standards, there are very few people who use it according to the stats, but I'd like to help anyone else who does. What's my next step?
Right. So according his profile description, Matt Oquist (the current maintainer) left the Moodle community long ago. It is not unfair to steal the plugin from him in such situation. I'll be more than happy to see if the plugin is adopted and maintained by you, Tia.
Can you please share what is the URL of your code clone with your recent additions / updates?
