Hello world,

as some of you might have guessed, I plan to elect another core  
maintainer. Just like Gerhard is a dedicated Drupal 4.7 maintainer,  
and Neil is a dedicated Drupal 5 maintainer, I'm looking for a  
dedicated Drupal 6 maintainer. This maintainer is only allowed to  
commit to the Drupal 6 branch (and to CVS HEAD until the Drupal 6  
branch is created). Remind that only Steven and myself can commit to  
all branches.

If you think you have what it takes to be a Drupal 6 maintainer, I'd  
like to hear from you.  Send me your application in _private_ and we  
can talk more. Note that I don't just pick anyone -- I only pick  
those who I have successfully worked with in the past, that bring a  
certain talent to the table (see http://buytaert.net/neil-drumm for  
why I picked Neil), and whose vision aligns with my own.  Like it or  

Being a core maintainer is a significant commitment; it takes a lot  
of time/effort and this for a period of at least two major release  
cycles (i.e. 1-2 years).  I'm sure that Neil and Gerhard can assert  
this so don't take this lightly.  Reviewing patches is not always the  
most exciting job in the world either, however, defining the future  
of Drupal is.  Part of your job will be to lead and guide other  
developers in this awesome adventure.

I don't want to discuss applications in public, so make sure to send  
them to me in private.  Thanks!
