Well, I already spoke with Eric, and he has already agreed to take over as maintainer for the time being. But I'm glad you're interested in the maintainer role, and I'm sure Eric will keep you in mind. The library has benefited from your help in the past, and I know you could be a great help in the future. Thanks Michel!
