There are 13 maintainers of the package (see:,
and it was accepted by one of them.

Not really. If you look carefully, you'll notice that none of those 13
people has a check in the "Maintainer" column (or bugowner, FWIW). All
of them are _project_ maintainers. The package actually does not have
any maintainer.

It *had* a maintainer until about an hour ago. Said maintainer removed himself at that time.

What's the point of maintaining a package if you're given less than three hours to accept/reject a request before someone else butts in?

I have better things to do...
