The healthier compromise would be admitting they don't have the cycles and inviting a code contribution. Fork the project and do a pull-request. If the devs don't a contribution, if it fixes an issue and it is of good quality, then maybe it is time to accept the original project is in life support and the fork deserves to be the future?
