As far as 1.31.0 goes, I don't mind managing most of it. But what would be
a great help is if you (and anyone else interested) would volunteer to work
on patches/bugs/issues management.
There are really two aspects of this:
(1) Making sure that patches, bugs, and issues get dealt with. (I can
provide more details on what this involves.)
(2) Figure out a better way to track patches, bugs, and issues. Somehow we
aren't making use of available tools; we need to fix that.
