It's not just extropes.
Check out Eric S. Raymond's Continuity Page
A virtual will and testament in case I fall off the net

I found this statement both charming and practical:
"If you're reading this and have solid reason to believe that I'm out of the
game and the designated successors listed here don't know it, please email them
all and ask them to re-read this page and take appropriate action."

"All my other projects and FAQs will be up for grabs. If you want to claim
control of one, send mail to my virtual executors. They'll arbitrate between
conflicting claims, arrange the transfer, and flag the project claimed."

I think Eric's page could serve as a template for others who want to answer this

Stay hungry,
