In term of the MAINTAINERS file:

         S: Status, one of the following:
            Supported:   Someone is actually paid to look after this.
            Maintained:  Someone actually looks after it.

The PPC entries have a 'Maintained' status. You say "IBM will shoulder
this responsibility", does that mean the entries will be 'Supported'
as in "someone paid to look after them"?
I wonder because both Cédric and you have some commits with an IBM
email, but both are registering a non-IBM email as contact.

Lotus Notes was not designed for patch communication. You don't want
me to send patches with it I assure you :)

I don't
mind the email technical detail, but I am curious about the status
and expectations.

We have other IBM commitments. IBM is willing to share some/most of
our time for QEMU-PPC maintenance.

What we are going do will depend on inputs really. We have pseries
and KVM in focus because there is still business using the software
stack. TCG is extremely useful for pseries and powernv. We clearly
want to keep that running and improve it. Some parts have been barely
touched (and probably used) in the last 15 years. I think we should
drop some support to modernize the useful parts and ease maintenance.
