Hi Suhaib,

You are correct, the maintainer needs to be changed if you are unable to maintain the package further. You need to nominate another maintainer for the packages you listed. 

Once the new maintainer steps in, 

1. Change the Maintainer or Authors using R field in the DESCRIPTION file of the package to reflect the change. 

2. Maintainer has to have a BiocCredentials account. 

3. Maintainer has to be subscripted to bioc-devel using r-project.org mailing list.

    To whom ever it may concern,

    I have been maintaining the Bioconductor R packages (ExpressionAtlas and 
    ArrayExpress) of Gene Expression Atlas team at the EMBL-EBI. As I will 
    be leaving EBI, I understand the maintainer needs to be changed. Could 
    you point to the procedure for changing the maintainer ?

    Expression Atlas - 
    Array Express -
