The last maintainer stepped down a couple years back due to a job
change[1].  A new one seems to be needed.

I would like to see this reviewed and landed as well.  I don't know
pixman internals or code requirements, but I did not see anything
technically wrong with the patch and it's been tested by end users and
verified it does what it says it should.

Fwiw, I've worked with Marc on the Inkscape project for some time now
(he's also on Inkscape's Board of Directors).  He does good work and is
reliable on following up on issues.  I would definitely give a +1 for
commit access for him on pixman.
