Fixing an open bug is up to the Treecleaning dev in question.  I've been 
talking to some people on how exactly to handle this.  I don't want to 
bump random packages and not add myself as maintainer; usually this 
amounts to the same package having a bug assigned to maintainer-needed 
or treecleaners in a couple of months (either for another bump; or some 
other reason).  However if I were to take ownership of every maintainer 
needed package that has an ebuild I'd soon be the proud owner of about 
100 packages that I don't care about.

The masking and the e-mails and the bug filings are done for a reason; a 
loud and clear "this bug needs a maintainer or it's getting axed."  Some 
stuff gets fixed (aka pornview) most of it gets punted instead.
