See metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/unmaintained.  I think
there's a pointer to this from the mirror sites.

We still need a page for HOWTOs where the current maintainer wants
out, but is willing to continue until another maintainer is found.

At one time I thought it would be worthwhile to spilt the unmaintained
HOWTOs into 2 categories:  One category would be ones that don't need
to be maintained because they are obsolete.  The rest would currently
need a new maintainer.  I've changed my mind on this and now think
that even ones that are of only historical interest still need a
maintainer to maintain the "history" or add historical notes as to how
this technology/software was replaced by something better.  Such a
maintainer would likely have an easy job if few (if any) people are
using the HOWTO.  While there is no great "need" for such a
maintainer, it would be nice if someone wants to do it.
