I would like to adopt and volunteer to be the new maintainer of the Course Request Manager plugin which appears to be abandoned since 2018-09-17 (almost 3.5 years).
I have attempted to contact the maintainers directly and indirectly on multiple occasions over the past 6 months through Moodle.org, GitHub, direct email and even LinkedIn (I tracked them down) enquiring about their plan to continue maintaining and update this plugin to fix it up and make it compatible with recent versions of Moodle, or alternatively to transfer its ownership to me. Sadly, I never received a response. Neither of the maintainers has logged into Moodle.org since early 2019.
I am already maintaining a fork of this plugin since early 2021 which includes many fixes for bug, accessibility, language, Moodle 3.9-3.11 compatibility, UI and usability issues. I also integrated commits from other forks of the plugin. I would like to make all these updates available to the Moodle community on Moodle.org.
Please let me know if there is anything more that I need to do or that you would like to know.
