I think the attempts to get more official partnerships by Samuel and
yourself are very valuable, but by the same token, I think we need to
accept that having a single maintainer for some packages just doens't
make sense.

For example things like initscripts, udev, systemd etc. should be
maintained by a "core" team, and IMO, not a single person (tho' if
someone steps up and is proven to be reliable then this is obviously not
a bad thing per-se!). I'm certainly happy to help out here.

This is a bit OT for this thread tho'... :)
