I would like to see a more liberal policy towards maintenance. For
example, there are many people that are knowledgable and responciple,
and which can easily apply patches that have been agreed on. Therefore I
see a "sub-maintainer" role as too narrow; why should he not be able to
patch a different library as long as the ticket has been discussed and
the solution approved by the official maintainers?
