is it possible in any way to get access to an abandoned plugin in the WordPress.org Plugin Repository?
Some good plugins I like have been abandoned by their developers and are not reachable. In some cases I would really like to keep them alive and ensure compatibility with upcoming WordPress releases.
I know that I could submit a new project but I do not want to fill the repo with clutter and leave it with another outdated plugin that could be resurrected with minimal code changes.
I am sure there is some kind of precedent for this case.
