OK, sounds like PMCs are not empowered to make a judgement call here.
Here are two cases:

1) Swiz Framework.

This code base was proposed for donation way back in 2013.  There was even
a vote thread [1] and emails from one of the contributors who was trying
to sort through the paperwork [2].  Code base is here [3].  I believe he
got busy with other things and simply couldn't find motivation to try to
hunt down the small contributors and gave up.

2) AS3Commons

A major contributor, who is also a committer, asked about donating this
code base to the ASF.  Because of the issue tracking down past
contributors for Swiz, I recommended that he make sure he knew how to get
in touch with all past contributors before we officially proposed this
donation to the project.  So there is no discuss or vote thread yet.
Because he is also busy doing other things, he has not found the time to
hunt down all past contributors.  Code base is here [4]
