I am working on an existing Redmine plugin but the author of the plugin doesn't have an account on anymore. Can you please assist in helping me get access to update the page?

We don't have a formal process in place to adopt a plugin.

If you have created a fork of the plugin, please register a new plugin here:
You can then describe your fork and how it came to life, add compat info and more.

Please contact me if you're done.
I would then add a reference to your fork together with a note to the original listing stating that the plugin has been abandoned.

Hey Jan,

It will not be a fork of the plugin. I did get in touch with the author, but he said he doesn't see a way to change authors. Is there a way to add additional authors to a plugin? If not, are there any other options than marking it as abandoned?

Unfortunately there's no way to change authors. Jean-Philippe may do it directly in the database, but that's the only option. Adding more than one author isn't possible either.

Reassigning this: @JPL, can you please change the author of the plugin accordingly?
