Uhm there is, no?

 * join committers by following the instructions
 * introduce yourself
 * declare yourself emeritus/temporarily (at least) retired


 * join the dicussion
 * introduce yourself as the folk who wrote the Xxxx components
 * ask to participate

If you can't do the first over the course of 2 mos, 3 mos, 6 mos or
