This is something we don't have a formal policy on. If you're talking
about custom Java classes for a module, most of those I've seen have
been released without any license information (which is bad practice,
but I think most module designers aren't aware that they should).
If you're just talking about maintainership for a module---module pages
in the wiki should list who the current module maintainer is. Lots of
modules don't have maintainers right now. I suspect that players would
be grateful to have their modules maintained if you wanted to volunteer.
