If there is any interest, I would volunteer to pick it up.

The Cordova-osx has its uses (I use it myself).

One advantage over the Atom Electron is the plugins.
Many non-UI iOS plugins will works with it out of the box.

Another is that it's just another Cordova platform so you don't have to
work with yet another API.

However, I think you'll rarely be satisfied with 'pure' cordova-osx
(entire UI done in HTML5/js) - it's way too limiting.
But for a hybrid app where you can mix in the native UI - it works well.
