 From blog: 

For anyone who has been paying any attention of PyKDE5 over the last 
year or so, it is no secret that development and maintenance has been at 
a standstill. I've been very busy with a family and small children, and 
that eats time like you wouldn't believe. (Unit number 2 is almost 6 
months now, healthy and happy I can report.) But another important 
factor is that my interests have shifted towards web related 
technologies over the last few years.

So, it is time to put the call out for a new maintainer or maintainers. 
I would also like to put in a bit of an apology to anyone who has 
depended on PyKDE5 and has had to put up this wishy-washy state of limbo 
for the project. And I would also like the thank people for the 
occassional drive-by commit which has helped keep the existing 
functionality mostly working.

Anyone interested should contact me. I'm willing to help and advise 
anyone who wants to learn the ropes, and to facilitate a transition to 
new management. If you are interested and curious but don't want to 
stick your hand up immediately and commit yourself, then still email me 
and I can forward on some information to you which may help explain how 
PyKDE5 works and is updated. It should give you an idea of the task at
