I am a frequent freemind user and I would like to take over.

Perhaps you may join as a co-maintainer.

sorry for the delay, but I've not had that much time recently.
The knowledge needed for maintaining the package is basically java packaging, the ant buildsystem and you need to be familiar with the fedora processes as well.
I would suggest that you, Kalpa, are applying for co-maintainership and I will give you all the needed rights. Then you could take a look at how it is packaged and see if you could make the new 1.0.0 release available. Please bear in mind that this might need some additional reviews of packages since upstream added some deps.
If all goes well, I will happily hand the package over to you completely!

Best wishes,
