OK, so I think you are saying that we can't take over change control of
these projects without paperwork from every contributor?  That's what I
was thinking as well, and why these donations may never get completed
because several of the past contributors have moved on to other things and
aren't following those projects anymore.

These communities are effectively dead.  I know one contributor from each
project and they are the ones interested in donating.  No commits in 4
years.  But I think that since not all past contributors have Apache ICLAs
we can't take over change control.
