I'm a member of pkg-wpa-devel and I've been sponsoring Kel for almost 4
years. I have absolute trust in him and I've even offered to advocate
him to the NM process multiple times.
I'd be happy to review and sponsor the uploads of crda/wireless-regdb,
if Paul doesn't have a problem with this.
I usually prefer team maintenance, so I think it'd be best if this
happened in pkg-wpa; my offer to sponsor is independent of that, though.
