I believe Jira admins do this on request.
I suggest Mike e-mail Alex Blasche about that.

I think the default assignee situation is mostly a case if "is anyone
willing ?" with perhaps a side-order of whether the Maintainer of
relevant code considers them suitable. So if Mike Krus is willing and
we have no objection from a the Maintainer of Qt 3D, it'd be better to
have the tickets assigned by default to someone willing and active.
I see Sean is in fact listed  as one of the Maintainers of Qt 3D
(alongside Laszlo Agocs, Svenn-Arne Dragly and Paul Lemire); if he is no
longer active, it's perhaps time for someone to politely contact him and
ask if he'd like to step down and, if so, in favour of whom. The coming
virtual QtCS  has a session on the question of how we deal with Ghost
Maintainers, so this may be an example to take up there.
