Michael, could you review Lynne's policy change on maintainership?
It's essential for us to move EVC case one step forward.

we could skip that hard splitting on patches step that we have to do each

I assign myself to personally review the patchset and push it, if you review
my policy change on maintainership. As I said, I have no objection on who
gets maintainership, just that it is done explicitly via a separate list in
the maintainers file.
