Greetings list;

I am interested the `gamma ` package (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/gamma), having sent an email about a month ago to the current maintainer about contributing to the package. I am following package takeover procedures<https://wiki.haskell.org/Taking_over_a_package> by posting here, and stating my intentions publicly.

Subject: Gamma Haskell package

Hello Mr. Cook;

My name is Alexandre, and I’m writing this email to you concerning the Haskell `gamma` package<https://hackage.haskell.org/package/gamma> that you wrote and uploaded to Hackage. The last commit in the package’s GitHub repository was over 6 years ago. A few other packages also depend on this one, but they all seem deprecated.

My question is if you have any plans for this package, and if you would accept my contributions to it.

The reason why I ask this is because I am a contributor to another Haskell number theory package called `arithmoi`<https://github.com/cartazio/arithmoi>, and the gamma function is a useful tool to have at times.

To finalize, I apologize for the unexpected email, and appreciate the time you took to read it.
