So this mean it's preferred, that for example:

- I grab mysql and httpd
- I do as i see fit
- contributions to httpd (which happen), will have to ask me before doing it.
- since i only wanted to help, i may do a bad job of maintaining it, ie: not 
enough fixes, don't respond to others who want to patch httpd, etc...
- perhaps i only care about stable and don't do anything on cauldron
- i could change apache layout for cauldron to debian-style, which i think is 


Personally, i think it's better that it gets done properly. having such a big 
responsibility is a pretty big point...

but otoh, i don't have a better idea...



PS: as a side note, devs of /soft stuff should also be their packagers and 
maintainers; it seems so weird that eg: mgaonline doesn't have a maintainer? 
when it's arguably the most visible package of mageia itself?
(as an example, i wrote urpmi-proxy and plasma-applet-launchbutton and i am 
listed as maintainer for it as well)

PPS: or perhaps a dev team should be formed and that team leader could be 
listed as maintainer of all dev packages that are now in nobody. and the 
people working on packages in /soft could be in the dev team...
