On the contrary. A library should always be placed in CMT first before being
given to a new maintainer. Once a person emerges whose pull requests to the
library demonstrate ability and long-term willingness to maintain it, the
library may be handed over to him. Not before.

The CMT's primary task should be to merge pull requests. Not that much
manpower is required.
