Yes, but... if there is no someone who is responsible for maintainership, then we would receive such emails like Heiko sent "who is going to merge"
I don't also want adding many maintainers unnecessary but drm bridge - although the framework is a thin and small - is used *over the ARM SoC* so that many confusions may happen for upstream.

So although it's small framework or just subdirectory, we would need someone who can manage the framework to avoid further confusion if necessary.
