Who has time these days? I can ask the GNU project to appoint yet another 
person as a co-maintainer. I don't like to be the bottleneck.

(Note that being a maintainer needs to follow and advocate the philosophy of 
GNU, as a representative of the GNU project. So, if you have any important 
role in another project (e.g. Debian), I don't recommend being a maintainer. 
Otherwise, you will face on conflicts from time to time.)
