Besides the suggestion by Philipp you could transfer the key to the user 
"abandoned_extensions". That will also speed up the transfer to a new 
maintainer in case someone wants to take over.

If you don't have access to your typo3.org account I can arrange the 
transfer (as member of the Extension Coordination Team) for you.
