I'll take gnuchess and xboard.
In addition to the evidence raised by Jaroslav Skarvada in November,
attempts to contact him still are failing. Also
* all 8 of the 8 open bugs assigned to kaboom have had zero activity
from him including
# 593629  is an upstream release monitor bug which shows multiple
upstream releases with no response going back to nearly a year ago (May
# 646466  is for the Remove Setuid F15 feature filed in Oct
2010 with no response.

and two crash bugs there, as well as a bug going back to 2007, all with
* he has only ever commented on 11  of his 46  assigned bugs, the
last comment coming in 2008, and most of his bugs being closed by other
contributors. (this doesn't count any which were re-assigned to others

* kaboom's last koji build is well over a year ago.
* Google searches don't turn up anything on him in a few years, save for
this non-responsive maintainer thread.
