Hi Nitin,

I wish if I could somehow know your plans for next release, so that I
can schedule my work accordingly, else my work on zram will be total
waste of my time making patches and your time replying and reviewing
it. Finally I have decided to delete my zram git.

Thanks and wishes for new year in advance.
