so if someone wants to take over your discountined plugin, then you want them to edit the plugin page? I guess thats a question for AvikB as to whether it would be possible to provide a way to transfer the owner of a add-on.
That might be useful for me as well because i was wondering whether to upload some of the plugins where the developer hasnt been active and if they return then ownership can transfered back to them

excuse me for my english  :)

i meant that i want to transfer all wiki pages for discontinued plugins, which are NOT mine, but don't want to constantly edit those pages if original developer of some such plugin decides to continue development.

as far as i understood admin dashboard doesn't have tools to transfer ownership of add-on page?

i am not aware of such functionality but if it already exists then AvikB can comment on that.

If you are willing to load the plugins from the wiki page, i think we should wait for confirmation the functionality to transfer ownership exists before anything is done.
