Re: Helping busy maintainers

There are some developers who are clearly too busy to maintain their
packages properly, but yet cannot be considered inactive enough so
that their packages should be given away.  I'd like to have a group of
people who are willing to help those developers out by co-maintaining
their packages for a while.  Anyone interesting, please let me know
and I will give you a listing of maintainers/packages.

Alioth has been a terrific resource for me in this regard. Using it and dpatch, I'm easily able to co-maintain packages, maintain bugs, and keep releases in check with multiple developers.

I'd highly recommend that this group utilize Alioth to its fullest, so that co-maintainers can best pool their resources.
