[wli@holomorphy.com: Re: NMU: kernel]

Please pardon the forwarding. This aspect of the control transfer
process should be subject to open review, but apparently I erred
in my usage of my MUA. This post should help clarify my intentions
(along with the rest of the team's) with respect to kernel maintenance.

My understanding is that the PowerPC port people listed are not
intended to maintain PowerPC exclusively, but rather are volunteers
for the team with specific interest in PowerPC.

I am very interested in following precedents, and that means that you
and Sven are not being challenged at all for PowerPC maintainership.
You will merely have new helpers with interests in PowerPC, and AFAICT
the time limitations they've spoken of are certain to limit whatever
they're on about to just that and not any kind of challenge to your
maintainership and so on.

I apologize for not enumerating the preexisting maintainers of various
architecture ports in the list of maintainers being recruited to help
with the debian kernel; I erroneously presumed only the new additions
would need to be discussed.
