I haven't followed the discussion on gnome-love about the new gnome-
utils community forming, but maybe you could join them? Other than that
please mail the individual maintainers and ask them if they're
interested in assistance or handing over maintainership.

You'll find the people in question in the module's MAINTAINERS file in
CVS. Also note what was mentioned already in this thread. In most cases
just picking up work on a module is enough to get involved. Look through
bugzilla reports, TODO lists etc and start working. Sooner or later
you'll find that you're counted as one of the maintainers :-)
