I don't think there's been an announcement.  We seem to be in a tacit
trial period, seeing how things work out in practice by experiment.  I
think most of us would prefer the experiment to end with John's position
as maintainer confirmed.

This discussion on git is one of these marginal topics, which sort of
does, sort of doesn't belong in emacs-devel.  When such marginal threads
go on too long, people get irritated.  As one of the people to blame for
starting it, I think it is a reasonable request from our
(trial-)maintainer to stop it, though to allow the thread to carry on
would also be reasonable.

Personally, I think it would be a good thing for this thread to end,
